BATAVIA, NY - A trash proposal that had neighbors in Batavia unhappy has been trashed.

The city's proposal to transfer garbage and recycling service from current provider ARC to an out of town provider was rejected 7 to 2.

Earlier this month, more than 200 people turned out to city hall to protest the plan that would have brought totes to Batavia, and would have implemented a user fee based on the amount of trash each household put on the curb.

Leaders will meet later this week to try to chart a new course as the city's contract with its current garbage provider ends soon.
