Beginning November 1, 2021
Waste Management will be delivering new bins for trash (black lids), recycling (blue lids), and green waste (green lids). Waste Management will also be delivering a kitchen food waste pail for collecting compostable organic waste. Old trash and recycling bins should be left curbside after the regular service dates beginning the first week of November 2021. They will be removed the next day by a separate Waste Management truck.
Note: A recent Waste Management advisory reported that the delivery of green waste bins in our community will occur during December 2021.
Beginning January 1, 2022
Residents will be required to separate their food waste from trash and place all food waste along with any plant waste in the green top waste bin.
