[ARCHIVED] Automated Trash Pickup

Automated Trash Pickup

Switching to an automated trash pickup system would result in significant savings for the City over the two-person manual system we currently have.

 Concerns have been raised by some residents, including whether an automated system can work in northern climates when there is snow. Please take a moment to view a couple of brief videos, one showing automated trash collection in Newton, Massachusetts and the other from Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada, both following snowstorms.

 If the City Council decides to move forward in the direction of implementing automated trash pickup, additional concerns have been raised as to how to best inform the public. We plan to have numerous public outreach activities including public meetings, ads and news articles in the Laconia Daily Sun and articles in this newsletter. We also intend to create instructional videos that would be viewable on YouTube and Public Access Channel 24.

 The City’s current contract for trash pickup expires on September 30th; the City Council is being asked to make a decision on automated vs. manual trash pickup at the August 8, 2022 Council meeting. 

 Questions? Please call the Department of Public Works at 603-528-6379.
