■At » meeting of the Board of Health
yesterday afternoon the members of the
board, two members of City Council and
a representative of each newspaper ot
the city were invited to go with the
Board of Health to Trenton next Thurs
day to inspect the system of collecting
garbage in that dty. The trip will not
be in the nature of a junket, the ,mera
k»ra of the board paying thei.^vpeM-cs.
A committee consisting of Dr. H. W.
Briggs and J. Austin t-iuton recently re
turned from Trenton where they inspect
ed the system of collecting garbage
and they are firm in the belief that
sh°"ld a like system be adopted here the
present unsatisfactory garbage condi
ttons in this city would ue none away
■with and the householder* would expert
ejice no further trouble in having their
Jhrbagc collected. In addition it I»
pointçd out that the city would be saved
several thousands of dollars yearly. This
lias been the experience of the city ot
'I rentoti, which up to -day of mis yeni
hail the same system of collecting gar
Imge as is in vogue in Wilmington and
tjie Bo.ntl of Health of that cuy canid
dp fcothyig to remedy the t millions
until the jre.-enl plan was adopted. It
Is for the purpose of further inspecting
nd Becoming iml .ar with
it that the members of City Council
and the ncusp.i|ci repreaei.tatl .es have
been invited to .mile the ti:p. the mat
iei talked ovei with City Council at
a meeting of the committee of the whole
and the Council favored the investlga
? The report of the committee that
made the trip was received at the
beard meeting yesterday afternoon.
It painted the system in use in glorl
ous colors and recommended that the
if. ., »tin bo auopted here.
' In Trenton the householders are
Required t'o place the garbage In bags
and papers and deposit It on the side
walk for collection. The garbage
llay be placed In cans but it must
HP wrapped in papers If this is done
although It Is not necessary to tie
the packages. The garbage is col
keted by the city anti not by a con
tractor. The collections are made
flour times a week and since the
system was started on "May 1 of this
war there have been but a nominal
number ot complaints.
* Trenton owns 1C own crematory. Hi
& operated by the city and the ex
flense of collecting the garbage and
ashes amounts to about $32.000. In
Wilmington under the present sys
tint it cost's abcut $40,000.
„ Alexander J. Taylor, city engineer
asked Mr Ellison what would be;
<ttme It Wilmington householder« re
ffesed to wrap tnolr garbage properly
dhd it became unslghllv on the
streets, or what would be done If the
ordinance was violated lu any
{Banner. Mr. Ellison replied chat In
City Bsard of Health Thinks
Plan Would Work Well
t. 1-, i.UU' il
ÿenton for such violations the
Householder is fined $1 and costs. It
Is the Idea of the City Health Board;
«at If City Council sees fit to pass
s like ordinance a provision for a j
j&nalty should be embodied in it. It
ÎÏ held that there also should be a
jH-ovislon in the ordinance fixing a
Snalty, should the contractors not '■
collect the garbage. As the matter
si'ands the hoard can do nothing
garbage is not collected here,
Ellison said he had talked with
the city garbage contractors who seem i
ed to favor the Trenton plan and lie;
thought that a new ordnance providing
for bettor condition» lor all partie»
would be welcomed by the contractors.
