What is Automated Solid Waste Collection?

Automated collection is a process that allows one operator to control a mechanical arm that will lift specially designed trash cans and dump the contents into the body of the garbage truck.

This method saves time, which allows Town crews to serve the community more efficiently.

The 96-gallon containers allow for less trash overflow. Container lids help prevent the wind and animals from scattering loose trash and reduce waste odor.

In addition, using this method eliminates the need for crew members to manually lift trash containers, reducing the chance of injury.
