Trash Receptacles Program Expands

Garbage cans for website

City officials are continuing to have new sanitation receptacles deployed throughout the city, replacing privately owned cans and providing uniformity to the garbage pickup and recycling system. 

Two years ago, the city launched a pilot program with the new receptacles along the arterial and, in September, the City Common Council approved additional funding for the city’s ongoing effort to keep neighborhoods cleaner and healthier by providing all city sanitation customers with the new sanitation carts.

These durable, 95-gallon carts on wheels are equipped with attached tight fitting lids that have proven effective in deterring rodents and keeping the streets clean. One can has a black lid for garbage; the other has a blue lid for recycling.

The carts are being assigned to each customer but remain the property of the city. Residents will not be charged for the carts but will be responsible for any costs incurred from damage or loss.

Residents also need to place their garbage into bags before placing them in the garbage carts, and each one should be placed by the curb with the handles facing toward the property after 5 p.m. the day before garbage and recycle pick-up.
