Starting the week of March 3rd the new trash and recycling carts will be delivered.

Collection using the new carts will not start until March 17th.

Please do not use the new carts until this date as your trash won't be able to be picked up.

The placement of the cart shall be as follows: cart shall be placed within 5’ of the edge of pavement or curb, cart cannot be placed within 24” of any mailbox, utility pole, car, tree or other cart, there can be no obstruction between the cart and the roadway. There shall also be no overhead obstructions within 12’. These clearances are required so that the automated arm can reach, grab and dump the cart.

At this time this is all the information available to the public.  As the rest of the program is finalized we will post this information here.  This will include the availability, procurement procedure and pricing for the extra carts.
