Lakeview Village Council talks trash

Whether or not to switch to a single hauler for trash service is once again a topic of discussion after Lakeview Village Council heard a presentation this month by one of the multiple waste management companies that serve residents and businesses inside the village limits.

A representative from Allied Waste Industries attended the Aug. 10 council meeting and recommended that Lakeview consider going the way of other municipalities in Montcalm County and contract with one hauler, whether that’s his business or someone else’s, according to Lakeview Village Manager Darin Dood.
