Sanitation Department Alley Conversion

Sanitation brining new rollout collection bins to residents on the blocks of 4th and 6th street

The Sanitation department is in the process of an Alley Conversion of metal dumpsters to the blue curbside rollout collection bins for residents in the 4-block radius between the streets of 4th and 6th running from Coggin St. to Avenue K.

Sanitation is undergoing these conversions for several reasons:

Cost-saving measures- The price of maintaining metal dumpsters has increased over the years compared to plastic rollouts. Safety and Proficiency- Curbside pick-up is safer for trash trucks due to the narrow alleys and obstacles such as gas meters and utility lines. This lessens the chances of accidents.

Beautification- There is a noticeable decrease in the dumping of debris in an alley that has been converted to street-side pickup. Increasing the overall appearance of the neighborhood.
