Old Cart Removal Process
Place your empty old cart at your collection location for removal.
For example, if your garbage collection day is on Mondays, make sure your old cart is out at the collection location on Mondays starting on October 8, with no garbage in it. Garbage should only be placed in your new City garbage cart. If your garbage cart is not removed on Monday, please put it in a safe location until next week. Keep it empty and then put it back out on your next collection day for removal.
If your new garbage collection day is:
Monday: Your old cart will be removed on Monday, October 8, 15, 22 or 29
Tuesday: Your old cart will be removed on Tuesday, October 9, 16, 23 or 30
Wednesday: Your old cart will be removed on Wednesday, October 10, 17, 24 or 31
Thursday: Your old cart will be removed on Thursday, October 11, 18, 25 or November 1
Friday: Your old cart will be removed on Friday, October 12, 19, 26 or November 2
Please note that a few haulers did remove some or all of their company's garbage carts during September 24-October 5: Gene's Disposal, Highland Sanitation, Krupenny & Sons Disposal, Pete's Rubbish, and Walters.
The old carts must be empty in order to be removed. Depending on the condition of the carts, garbage haulers will re-purpose the cart in different cities they serve, use them as yard waste carts, recycle them, or properly dispose of them.
