The City's contract for the new cans delivers the cans to eligible properties between April 17th and April 28th.
Automated curbside collection begins with the trash collection on May 1st and automated recycling collection begins May 8th.
Residents can use their existing cans or bins for composting or storage, or give them to others who do not receive curbside recycling.
Residents who want to dispose of their old trash and recycling cans have three options:
1. Bring them to the Transfer Station on free dump day, May 13th, when you can dispose of them for free.
2. The week of April 24th mark the containers with the words "Take can as trash" and the collection contractor will take the containers and dispose of them for you.
3. Bring the containers to the Transfer Station at your convenience. You will pay a fee for disposing of the cans if you use this option.
