TACOMA, Wash. —

Tacoma residents will have their garbage collected every-other-week, instead of weekly.

The change for 5,700 households in north Tacoma takes effect March 11. The change will be phased in for about 48,000 more households through November.

The city's Solid Waste Management agency says customers will receive a second container or double-size container, so they have the same capacity.

The city expects every-other-week service will result in less garbage, more recycling and greater efficiency in waste collection.
