Is your garbage bin broken? Have the wheels popped off the cart, forcing you to drag it over to the curb every collection day? You’re not alone. Did you know you can get them fixed for free?

Simply email the Solid Waste Department (Website) at [email protected] to let them know you need a repair or a replacement.

Once your request has been received they will place you on the list of carts to be inspected in the coming week. They will instruct you to leave your garbage or recycling carts out in a place where they can be seen easily once workers arrive on-site at your home. They don’t have to be on the curb.

Continue to use the bins as needed while waiting for the repairs.

Again, this is a free service. Take advantage of it.
