In late March, after the new containers have been delivered, you will have opportunity to put signs ("TAKE WITH TRASH") on your unwanted containers and they will be disposed of. However, the old containers belong to you, so you might want to repurpose them. Here are a few possibilities:

Unless you prefer small containers, you do not need to. Single family homes that currently get City-contracted solid waste removal will AUTOMATICALLY receive one 96-gallon container for recycling and one 64-gallon container for trash collection. If you would prefer using a 32-gallon container for trash (instead of a 64-gallon container for trash), you can use the Recycling and Trash Container Order Form to request it. Similarly, if your entire household is either over 65 years old or disabled, there is an option for to order a 64-gallon recycling container.
If EVERYONE in your household (spouse, children, etc. ) is either 65 years old or disabled, you can request a 64-gallon container (instead of a 96-gallon container). Use the order form at the bottom of the Trash Collection Update web page to place your order.
No, you cannot order two. You can request one 32-gallon container, but keep in mind that means you have considerably less space for trash storage.
This program is designed to provide containers (that are compatible with the new automated collection system) to those residents and businesses that currently receive City-contracted solid waste collection. The City contract provides trash collection along public roads only. For that reason, the streets in most private developments have intentionally been removed from the order form. If you believe your street was removed in error, contact the DPW at by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 603-528-6379.
No. The new automated trucks are not designed to pick up the small toters like these.
Place your containers along the road at least 3 feet apart from each other, parked cars, trees, mailboxes and utility poles. Avoid places where there are low hanging tree branches or power lines, etc.. The containers should be upright with the hinge of the lid oriented away from the street. Keep in mind that a mechanical arm is going to reach out and grab your container, so they should not be left out back to back. For more information, see the Curbside Placement Guide.
