Trash pickup expected to resume today

Uncollected trash sits by the curb last Thursday on Union Street in Benton Harbor. Residents said the trash is usually picked up in that area on Wednesday. Wecycle Industrial Sanitation owner Robert Edwards says the $39,000 monthly payment from the city was given to a former employee, leaving him with no money to pay for fuel and the landfill fees.

BENTON HARBOR — After almost a week of garbage piling up, pickup should resume today in Benton Harbor, if everything goes as planned.

Benton Harbor city commissioners voted Monday to advance November’s payment to Wecycle Industrial Sanitation LLC, in care of Robert Edwards of Southfield.
