Update on updates to curbside garbage and recycling collection system

The new City of Marquette solid waste contract for curbside collection of garbage and recycling took effect Oct. 1. The new contract offers a hybrid system where the customers may choose between continuing to use the current green bag system or the new cart system. The City developed an informational order form for those customers switching to carts. Customers will remain on the green bag system unless they turn in the order form. The order forms are being included in City utility bills. Order forms should be returned to the City when the customer pays their bill. Order forms must be turned in by the end of November. Carts are expected to be distributed during January of 2018.
The actual 64-gallon carts and 96-gallon carts can be seen on the first floor of City Hall, at 300 W. Baraga Ave. and at the new Municipal Service Center, at 1100 Wright St. A sample 48-gallon cart has been requested but is not yet available. The cart manufacturer will be Cascade out of Grand Rapids. The manufacturer will deliver the residential carts to the individual residences.
