Longview’s sanitation manager said Tuesday that a city ordinance may be necessary to encourage residents to keep new, larger 95-gallon trash and recycling carts off curbs after collection day.

Dwayne Archer, director of Sanitation and Fleet Services, was responding to a question asked Tuesday at the second of two information meetings about the city’s proposed sanitation plan.

Two Longview residents, Victoria Wilson and Clay Baxley, told Archer they believe Longview residents they know — particularly those who live in duplexes, triplexes, and quadruplexes — will be unlikely to move trash and recycling carts off their curbs.

“I have some four-plexes at the end of my road. I see that these (carts) might be sitting at the curb a lot. We really don’t have the room or the place to put them,” Baxley said.

Archer said the problem could be addressed in a variety of ways.
