Carbondale Residents Prep for New Trash Can Roll-Out

Carbondale residents, who find themselves with unneeded trash cans following the new trash cart roll-out, have several options to choose from.

Carbondale Public Relations Officer Amy Fox says residents can keep their old can and use it for other purposes; pass it on to someone who needs it; bring it to Southern Recycling (wheels and metal must be removed); or make a note on it asking city workers to take it to the landfill.

If you would like to give your trash can a new home, a site has been set up by Keep Carbondale Beautiful behind Hickory Lodge, located at 1115 W. Sycamore St. for “Trash Can Give Away.” Residents can leave cans in the back corner of the parking lot, next to the shed. Anyone in need of a free trash can is invited to come take one.

If you have questions or would like more information, contact the city’s Maintenance and Environmental Services Office at 457-3275.
