New Trash Company for Harrington Residents
Trash and recycling services were bid out earlier this year, and the contract was awarded to the lowest bidder, Charlie’s Waste Services. There will be a small decrease in the trash rate for this fiscal year. Trash will still be collected every Thursday and recycling every other Thursday (see the Trash Collection Calendar 2017-2018).
Current Hauler Service End and Can Collection – Republic Services
The last day of trash and recycling collection from the current provider will be June 29. Please do not put any trash or recycling in the cans from Republic Services after June 29. A third party provider will be collecting the cans after they are emptied. Please leave the Republic trash and recycling cans at the curb/usual trash pick-up point. The can collectors will not enter your yard to remove the cans; they must be at the curb. It may take a few days to remove all the cans.
New Hauler Service Start and Can Delivery – Charlie’s Waste Services
Harrington residents will be receiving new trash and recycling cans from Charlie’s starting the week of June 19. The first trash collection from Charlie’s will occur on Friday, July 7 (pick-up is delayed a day because of the July 4 holiday; normal collection is on Thursdays).
EDIT: The new trash pick-up will be via an automated collection truck. Cans must be at the curb to be emptied. Please do not lean objects against the can or place it too close to fences, trees, mailboxes, or vehicles.
