Grid garbage collection begins Monday
November 11, 2012 (CHICAGO) -- Starting Monday, some people living in Chicago will notice a difference in how their garbage is picked up.
The Department of Streets and Sanitation is rolling out the grid garbage collection system to approximately 115,000 households.
It will affect people living on the city's Northwest, West and near Southwest Sides.
The mayor's office has said that switching to the grid system will save the city tens of millions of dollars.
