State College Residents Invited to Exchange Garbage Carts

by on May 06, 2013 10:34 AM

A few weeks back, State College residents were issued shiny new trash bins as part of the new refuse collection program. And now that you've had a chance to use them, maybe you're ready to make a change.

As you know by now, there are carts for regular garbage and carts for organics. And those carts come in a variety of sizes. If you need something larger (or smaller) you now have a chance to exchange your carts.

Borough staffers will be setting up shop in a different State College park every day this week. Just bring in your trash bin and they'll make arrangements to get you a new one in the proper size.

The replacement cart will be delivered to your curb the next day.

Cart Exchange Days Schedule:

Sunset Park, Monday, May 6, 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Lederer Park, Tuesday, May 7, 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Tusseyview Park, Wednesday, May 8, 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Orchard Park, Thursday, May 9, 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Holmes-Foster Park, Friday, May 10, 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

You can go to any of these parks, whichever one is most convenient for you.

If you ca't make any of the scheduled exchange dates, call the Public Works Department at 814-234-7135 or 814-234-7140 on Monday, May 13. You can register for an exchange at that time.

If you are physically unable to bring your carts to a park, call 814-234-7135, anytime between now and May 13 to sign up for a cart exchange. Public Works staffers will deliver new carts and pick up any unwanted carts.
