​​T​he County is rolling out an autom​ated cart collection system on November 1, 2021. This system is an easy and safe solution to curbside waste collection services.
Your carts may arrive as early as August; however,​ remember, do not put your carts out until November 1st.​

On average, these vertical carts use 50% less floor space to store waste​

Consolidate a variety of smaller bins, bags and containers into three​ carts

Good for the environment with more room for organics

Lids on all carts protect against windblown litter and impacts from critters

Cut down on lifting and trips to the curb! With wheels and ergonomic handles, just roll out two carts each week

Safer for everyone with touchless automated collection​

Proven and preferred in many other communities 

Carts will also ensure continuity of collection service and help to reduce potential for wide spread collection impacts previously experienced​​
