The City of Douglas
has a contract with Transwaste Services, LLC, to provide collection, transportation, and disposal of garbage and recycling refuse for the citizens of Douglas. Under the 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.
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. Residents who wish 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 Customer Care Center at City Hall.

During these Junk Free Weeks, customers will be allowed to dispose of their large, non-hazardous household items at the City Pole Yard at NO charge to the customer. Collection services will be provided for C & D material for an additional fee.
