Councilors Mike Ross and Felix Arroyo have been working to pass a Home Rule Petition to allow city regulation of commercial trash collection.
Currently, garbage trucks collecting trash in the middle of the night cause a great disturbance to residents throughout Boston neighborhoods, and the City Council will hold a hearing Monday at 5:30 p.m. about regulating commercial trash pick-up times.

The hearing starts at 2 p.m. in the City Council's chambers. 2. There will be one less business in Charlestown soon.

And it could be a hard time to recruit a new business to that space. 3. Margaret …
