Plymouth considers pay-as-you-throw trash program

Selectmen are set to decide Tuesday which of the three options they will put to Town Meeting for funding this spring. All require the purchase of special bags for trash disposal — a method known as “pay-as-you-throw.” The new program, if approved, is expected to begin in July.
