Money Needed To Fix Trash And Recycling Issues

(Baltimore, MD) -- Just hours after the director of the Department of Public Works announced his resignation, a new report surfaced showing the need for funding to fix Baltimore's trash and recycling problems.

A report states that nearly $40 million is needed to correct the city's ongoing trash problems.

The DPW hired Rubicon, a Kentucky company to troubleshoot issues and the company found the DPW was short drivers, laborers, and trucks to get trash and recycling collections back on track.

The report also found nearly four-dozen DPW trucks in need of repair.

Jason Mitchell announced earlier this week that he was resigning in April due to family and health concerns.
