Cart Exchanges


Following a Special Council Meeting on October 26, 2021, the County will be accepting cart exchange requests in mid-January 2022, with deliveries anticipated to begin by the end of February 2022. The program will provide residents with an opportunity to exchange their recycling and garbage carts for smaller options (with the smallest being the same size as the existing organics cart). Cart exchange and delivery will be free of charge until July 2022. Full details about exchanges will be communicated in January, and we ask residents to hold exchange requests until the system is in place early next year. As we wait for the exchange program to begin, please use this time to experience the new carts and confirm your household’s waste needs before deciding whether to switch size.
