Cape Coral city council addresses Waste Pro trash issues

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — As trash continues to pile up outside Cape Coral homes, the city is getting demanding action from Waste Pro.

Waste Pro officials attended a special meeting on Wednesday afternoon with council members regarding recent issues.

Waste Pro said that it’s severely understaffed and is struggling to stay on top of pick-ups. Despite working with numerous recruitment agencies, Waste Pro officials said they’re having trouble hiring new employees in the post-pandemic economy.

The mayor said they need an action plan by Monday to layout what they are going to do to fix the problems.

Some council members want to enforce the fines. From March 26-31, there were 624 missed pickups. With the current contract, the city can fine Waste Pro $250 per missed pickup. That would mean Waste Pro owes the city $156,000 in fines for just six days in March 2021.

Many residents have gone days – some even weeks – without trash being picked up from their front yard. However, others have not seen any issues at all.

The council didn’t make a decision about enforcing the fines. A majority of council members didn’t want to enforce fines yet.

The mayor wants an action plan by Monday and wanted Waste Pro officials to attend council meetings to show progress updates.
