MANDATORY WATER CONSERVATION IN EFFECT - REDUCE IRRIGATION

Upcoming Trash & Recycling Transition

Posted on July 15, 2022


Trash and Recycling Carts

Beginning in October 2022, Community Waste Disposal (CWD) will become the new residential trash and recycling services provider. The new base residential trash and recycling services will include one free CWD trash cart and one free CWD recycle cart. All residents will receive weekly collection of trash, recycling, and brush/bulk. In addition, all residents will have the opportunity to request door side collection of household hazardous waste or used electronics twice per year. These services are included with your base residential rate of $26.10 (including taxes and fees). A senior citizen discount rate of $23.49 (including taxes and fees) is also available to request if you meet the requirements. There are also optional services you may request for an additional fee such as extra carts, concierge service, and manure/stable matter collection. In preparation for the upcoming residential trash and recycling services transition to Community Waste Disposal (CWD), please be aware of the following transition process from Barnes Waste Disposal and Republic Services to CWD:

Republic Services Recycle Carts Removal
The last day of subscription-based recycling service by Republic Services is September 23, 2022. Please leave your Republic recycle carts out after your regular recycling pickup has been collected. Your Republic recycle carts will be removed beginning September 24, 2022. Republic Services will be sending out notifications to remind all subscribers to leave their recycle carts out so they can be removed. If your recycle cart does not get removed, please continue to leave the cart out to be removed throughout the first week of October.

Barnes Waste Disposal Trash Carts Removal
The last week of trash service by Barnes Waste Disposal is September 26-30, 2022. Please leave your Barnes trash carts out after your regular trash pickup has been collected. Your Barnes trash carts will be removed throughout the weekend and the first week of October. If your trash cart does not get removed, please continue to leave your cart out as work crews will continue to remove any remaining carts.

CWD Delivery of New Trash and Recycle Carts
CWD will be delivering one new trash cart and one new recycle cart to each Lucas residence beginning October 3, 2022. Your new trash cart and recycle cart will be delivered on your new service day. There will also be a CWD brochure attached to your new cart which provides information on the new available services and collection schedule. You will also receive a mailed copy of the CWD brochure in advance. Please look out for more information in the next newsletter and in the CWD brochure on how to find out your new service day prior to the transition.

Senior Citizen Discount Rate
The City will offer a senior citizen discount rate for seniors ages 65 or older on base residential trash/recycling services only. Seniors ages 65 or older can apply for the senior citizen discount rate. This discount does not apply to additional optional services such as extra carts, concierge service, excess bulk, or manure/stable matter collection.
