Several South End residents are ready to “talk trash” with aldermen this week, after the city announced it will no longer collect rubbish outside their homes — as it has for decades in some instances — because they live on private ways.

Donna and John Steele say they’ve lived at 116 Gabrielle St. in Manchester’s Ward 8 since 1988, and have never had an issue with the city collecting trash at the end of their driveway until they received a hand-delivered letter from the city’s public works department on Dec. 31 informing them they had been placing their trash on a private road and, “Effective immediately you will need to place trash for collection out onto Gabrielle Street.”
