New residential collection contract begins Oct. 1

Waste Management (WM) was recently selected as the contractor for all solid waste collection services from residences and small businesses who receive city service. The contract will begin Oct. 1, 2018 and last five years. This selection was made after a year-long process of surveying residents, discussions with city council and requesting proposals from 10 hauling companies. WM currently collects residential garbage and recycling and will start collecting organics and yard waste in October. Most of the city’s residential solid waste services will stay the same.

The most significant changes to the program include:

  • Additional service levels beginning January 2019, including every-other-week garbage collection for 20- and 30-gallon carts.
  • Organics and yard waste will be collected separately beginning Jan. 1, 2019. Residents with organics collection will need to set yard waste out in separate compostable bags or personal reusable containers.

Learn about the upcoming changes to the city’s solid waste program by viewing the solid waste open house presentation that was given during open house events in August 2018. Watch for an updated program guide to be mailed to your home in mid-September.
