The Smart Cart
What is a Smart Cart?
If you're within the city's Solid Waste service area, you should have a recycling Smart Cart in addition to your garbage collection barrel. If for some reason your home doesn't have one, simply call us at 891.4YOU (4968) and we'll have one delivered to you.
One side of the convenient Smart Cart is for recycling metal, glass and plastic containers: the other is for paper products. Rinse and crush, as far as possible all containers, flatten or cut boxes to fit.
The recycling Smart Cart, which can live right next to your garbage barrel, makes the decision to recycle a trouble-free option. Feed it often!
At first glance, the City's collection trucks for your recyclables look like they're picking up your Smart Cart and dumping it all into one bin. In fact, the trucks have a divided bin and are designed to collect two commodities at once from a divided cart. The automated trucks allow one person to perform the entire operation.
