The latest in a series of public meetings on Haverhill’s transition to automated trash pickup, to begin in May, takes place Wednesday night.

The next public hearing on the new trash plan begins at 7 p.m., Wednesday, in room 45, at the Haverhill Citizens Center, 10 Welcome St., according to Mayor James J. Fiorentini. The first of five informational meetings took place March 2 at city hall.

“We will have samples of the actual toters we will be giving out in May and staff on hand to answer your questions,” Fiorentini said in a post on social media.

Dates for the remaining three 7 p.m., public meetings are Wednesday, March 30 at Bradford Elementary School, 118 Montvale St.; Wednesday, April 6 at West Congregational Church, 767 Broadway; and Wednesday, April 20 at J.G.

    • It’s a scam is what it is.

      Shouldn’t public meetings have taken place ‘before’ a decision was made to make the change?

      When mayor taxman starts charging taxpayers for items that are now picked up for free he’s simply going to say ‘that was discussed at the informational meetings’.
      When the numbers don’t add up at the end of the year of the savings he is now promising he’ll just brush it off as temporary.
      When people are significantly inconvenienced, especially the elderly, he’s going to start charging them for additional individual services.
      In the end, just like everything else this incompetent fraud touches, it’s nothing more than ANOTHER revenue generating scheme to support his failing administration.
      And as always….the only person on the city council who asked tough questions and raised concerns challenging this program was Bill Macek.
