The City of Douglas
has entered into a new contract with Transwaste Services, LLC, to provide collection, transportation, and disposal of garbage and recycling refuse for the citizens of Douglas. Under the new contract, regular residential garbage collection will be every week and if a customer wishes to continue recycling with the VOLUNTARY Recycling Program, the customer will have to request a Recycling Cart through the Utility/Collections Department located at City Hall. There will NOT be a rate increase created by the changes.
Beginning June 3, 2013, regular Residential Curbside (Green) garbage collection will be weekly. Each home in Douglas will be provided a 95 gallon cart to be serviced once a week. In preparation for the new recycling program, ALL residential recycling carts will be picked up and removed from the residences Tuesday, May 28 through Saturday, June 1, 2013. Residents who wish to continue to participate in the new City of Douglas Recycling Program need to fill out a “Residential Recycling Cart Request Form” and submit it to the Utility/Collections Department at City Hall no later than June 5, 2013.
