Thomasville-  Thomasville Council will consider bagging what's becoming a smelly problem in the Rose City.  Monday night council members considered a first reading of a bag ordinance for city garbage.

The ordinance if approved would include residential and commercial garbage. All garbage would need to be bagged before it was placed in a roadside can or dumpster. 

"Now, the ordinances doesn't specifically say that you have to use trash bags, because that leaves room if you want to use a grocery store bags or department store bag," Nate Tyler,

Thomasville Solid Waste Director.  If approved, those who don't follow the new ordinance could find charges on their utility bills for trash can cleaning or replacement.
