HACKENSACK, N.J. -- Hundreds of residents turned out to the city council meeting June 14 in opposition to the council's consideration of privatizing the city's garbage collection, according to North Jersey.com.

The city is considering the idea due to the potential high cost of replacing its sanitation trucks which could costs as much as $2 million, reported North Jersey.com Residents are concerned not only about the costs, they also worry about the 30 city workers who would lose their jobs if the garbage collection goes private, said North Jersey.com.

City officials said they would have no idea what cost saving might be achieved by such a move, as the bids are sealed until Aug. 17, according to North Jersey.com. They also said part of the proposal was for any company that takes over to hire city workers first, reported North Jersey.com.
