Officials consider raising trash fees

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The City of Memphis could soon raise fees for trash outside your home.

They said this could prevent its Solid Waste Fund from running dry in 2020.

Council members think most people would choose a rate increase to keep the quality of their service.

The city's Public Works Director said he would continue discussing the options with council members and Mayor Jim Strickland in upcoming months.
