Trash wars continue

Benton Harbor’s garbage is still being picked up by Wecycle Industrial Sanitation in Benton Harbor, but no one knows for how long. Two of the three purported owners gave the city a letter Thursday stating that Robert Edwards is no longer allowed to pick up the company’s check from the city.

BENTON HARBOR — The future of Wecycle Industrial Sanitation in Benton Harbor is in question, as the three people who claim ownership battle for control of the company, while the owner of a previous company that picked up the city’s trash is considering selling the property.

In a Thursday letter, Wecycle owners and siblings Virginia Huddleston and Jewell Allen notified the city that the third owner, Robert Edwards, no longer has permission to do business on behalf of the company or to pick up the company’s checks from the city.
