Pedal People Ink Contract Renewal with Northampton
The Pedal People will continue to pick up trash and recycling in Northampton's downtown area for at least another year. Mayor David Narkewicz renewed the city's contract with the trash-hauling bicycle company Thursday. He tells WHMP news, the renewal speaks to the city's approach to being sustainable and green. And, it's also an affordable trash pick-up option, because the Pedal People aren't subject to fluctuating fuel costs. What's more, Narkewicz says the Pedal People are easy on the city's streets, and are quieter than noisy garbage trucks.
