The first 90-gallon carts will be collected on Oct. 1, according to a post on the city's website. The city has already started taking sign-ups for the program, which will cost subscribers $40 per year.
Saturday's open house will run from 10 a.m. to noon at the Municipal Service Center. Here's what resources will be available for residents:
- The new single-sort recycling cart
- The new 20-gallon garbage cart
- Backyard compost vs. commercial compost
- A Master Recycler/Composter will be available for questions
- A representative from a commercial compost facility will be available for questions
- Examples of additional metal and plastic items that can be recycled
- Sign up for organic waste collection and see the new yard and organic waste cart
- Poster boards and flyers describing the changes
According to City Council documents, the program was launched with the intent of reducing the amount of waste the city sends to landfills every year.
