The Solid Waste Department and Waste Management are providing residents an extra way to return their old trash and recycling carts. Beginning Saturday, January 29, you can bring your old carts to the Convenience Center (920 11th Street). The Center is open seven days a week, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and you can bring your cart any time during those hours.
This is for any cart which is not a new Ryland cart, so check the logo before you bring it. The carts must be empty of any trash and recycling material. The cart drop-off point will remain active as long as people need it. Waste Management will still collect old carts houses, and they should be placed empty on the curb on a person’s normal collection day.
“We’re working hard to make this transition as smooth as we can,” says Solid Waste Manager Maurice Jackson. “This is a lengthy process, so we wanted to provide people this other option to make it go quicker.”
At the beginning of this year, Macon-Bibb County began using Ryland Environmental for all solid waste services in Macon-Bibb County. We’ve published a series of videos, announcements, and graphics to help everyone through the transition.
