The city’s new privatized garbage collection and recycling service will begin today, with Modern Disposal crews picking up the garbage totes on the regular Monday route. City officials said the schedule will not be affected by the Columbus Day holiday.
City officials said crews would work through the weekend on delivering the new garbage and recycling totes. So far, delivery only for Monday and Tuesday customers has been completed.
Although garbage will be picked up every week, recycling will be taken only on alternate weeks. The schedule is in the literature included with the totes or at www.curbsidelockport.com .
Any "North Ender"s out there? Let us know how how it goes. I'm on the Thursday route and have yet to receive my totes. I am looking forward to recycling the old ones.
Residents who don’t receive their totes or who are given the wrong size should call 439-6752 to report that. Residents will be allowed to change sizes after Nov. 14, and the system of selling stickers to place on items that don’t fit in the totes won’t start until Dec. 5. Until then, extra bags may be put at the curb for free.
