Automated Garbage Collection

What is Automated Garbage Collection?

     Automated collection is a technologically advanced system of refuse collection. The system is called “automated” because a special truck, equipped with a mechanical or robotic arm, automatically lifts and empties special refuse containers without the operator leaving his seat in the truck. This system is designed to improve efficiency, make the task of putting out the trash easier and cleaner for residents, improve the appearance of the city, and greatly reduce the potential for injuries to city employees. This system is safer, more efficient, and requires much less labor to collect solid waste.

     The cart is to be placed near street edge by 7:00 AM on the morning of collection, and must be removed from the street before 7:00 PM on collection day. Carts are not to be left at the street all week.
