Public Utilities: Bi-weekly option for garbage collection

Offer a bi-weekly (every other week) option for trash collection at a reduced rate, and increase normal rate for weekly collection. This will provide incentive for citizens to recycle more, and be conscious about their consumption of disposable packaging and products, as well as save time and other resources for the collectors and their equipment. (As a single homeowner, I generate one microtainer of trash every month by avoiding over-packaged products and recycling more, yet am charged the same rate as my neighbors who generate up to four times as much solid waste per person.)
