Sound Off: Is the city, since it’s going to make it mandatory to have trash carts, willing to sell the carts rather than renting the carts? Can a person have that option to buy rather than rent?
This answer was provided by Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager: No. The first trash cart will be included in the monthly solid waste fee. There is no rental charge, unless a customer wishes to have more than one cart. The rental fees for additional carts pays for the costs of higher waste generation, including the time it takes to collect the materials, landfill fees, and so on.
