*Residents will be provided with a 96 or 48-gallon cart to hold garbage and yard waste.
*New program starts January 1, 2006
*96-gallon cart holds the equivalent of three normal sized garbage containers (33 gallons). The 96-gallon cart is the one used by most residents in other cities with similar programs.
*48-gallon cart holds the equivalent of a little more than one normal sized garbage container.
*If you are elderly, disabled or feel you need the 48-gallon cart, please fill out the information below.
Residents that choose the smaller 48 gallon cart will not be allowed to set out extra bags or cans on a regular basis. If a resident continually sets out extra bags or cans with a 48 gallon cart, it will be replaced with the larger 96 gallon cart.
Benefits of the new program
- Cleaner streets and alleys
- Safer neighborhoods

Get an up close look at the carts
*For the next few months, your local grocery store (Scott's, Kroger and Marsh) will have a display of the carts that will allow you to see them up close.
When will the carts be delivered and what happens to the current container I use?
*Your cart will be delivered to you in November or December. When you receive your new cart, it will include information about what to do with your current container.
