There are a number of new and enhanced services being provided under the new agreement.
- Old Carts Exchanged for New Carts
Your carts will be exchanged in March. All residents will then have three carts, including a 64-gallon recycle cart (blue) and a 96-gallon compost cart (green). Garbage carts (gray) will remain the same size as you currently have (unless yours is a 96-gallon garbage cart, which will be replaced with a 64-gallon version). The largest garbage cart is being phased out, since the new recycling opportunities will result in less waste from households. You will be able to get a 20, 32, or 64-gallon garbage cart.
- Kitchen Pail
All households will receive a kitchen pail for easy collection of your food scraps, to be emptied into your new compost cart
- HHW, E-Waste, and Shred Events
Household hazardous waste (HHW) drop off, electronic waste (E-Waste) drop off, and document shredding will be available at events twice each year.
- Bulky Items Pick Up
You can schedule up to two bulky items pickups per year.
- Oil, Oil Filter, and Battery Recycling
Curbside recycling of used motor oil and oil filters will continue to be available.
- Compost Giveaways
The contents of compost bins are used to create great, rich compost material, that will be provided for free at scheduled events.
