Sound Off: I ordered a smaller trash container because we never filled up the one we had. Last week our new one was delivered, but they didn’t take the old one away. Now I have double the trash space when I was hoping for less. Will the old ones eventually be taken away?
Roger Steinbrock, a marketing supervisor for the city, says residents who switched sizes should use the old container for trash until the crews pick it up. The new carts were delivered by the manufacturer, and the old ones are being collected by solid waste crews. The crews will be working to collect those on normal trash days, after the trash is emptied, through November. Once the old one is picked up, then use the new one. If the old cart has not been picked up by December, Steinbrock says to call at 832-3032.
