Where To Buy Blue Trash Bags __LINK__


The do-it-yourself household trash disposal option offered at the Locust Street Transfer Station requires that residents place their household trash inside pre-paid, blue SMART (Save Money and Reduce Trash) bags. The bags are available in three sizes (pdf), and may be purchased at participating SMART trash bag retailers (pdf). Hazardous household waste and yard waste should not be placed inside blue SMART bags.

For the safety of our collection crews and to maintain healthy working conditions, Solid Waste requires that all trash placed on the curb for collection must be in a bag, and all bags to be collected must weigh no more than 50 pounds. At this time, there is no limit to the number of bags placed curbside.


For residential curbside collection, the City of Columbia issues vouchers that may be redeemed for recycling bags. The City will continue to provide vouchers for trash bags until the current stock of trash bags has been depleted.


Vouchers are mailed in January and June (or roughly 3 weeks after moving into a new residence). In January 2023, you will find two vouchers for 26-count rolls of trash bags and two vouchers for 18-count rolls of recycling bags.


The note should indicate that the resident has a physical limitation and cannot place their trash or recycling curbside. Once documentation is received, the collection crews will then collect the bags from the residence (e.g. just outside of the garage door, carport, etc.). Our crews can not enter a garage or residence to collect materials. If you have additional questions about the program, please call the Contact Center at 573.874.2489opens phone dialer.


The stickers will remain the same price as the large blue bags, $2 each, as the large blue bags have been sold in a 5-pack for the price of $10 total or $2 per bag. Small blue garbage bags remain in stock and at their normal price of $6.25 for a 5-pack. Residents can buy large garbage stickers individually, or as many as needed.


With the implementation of your new Pay As You Throw(PAYT) Trash Cart Program, there are two options for disposing of trash. You can either continue to purchase blue PAYT bags and place them in the black cart or you can purchase a "trash tag" and stick it to your black trash cart which will permit you to use standard household trash bags such as Glad or Hefty bags.


Additionally there is a cost savings associated with purchasing a trash tag. If you typically use about one large blue bag per week you are spending $104 per year on trash ($2 x 52 weeks). Since a black cart holds the equivalent volume of one large blue bag, you are saving $29 per year by purchasing a trash tag.


If you occasionally have more household trash than will fit in your blue trash cart, consider requesting a larger or a second cart. You may also consider purchasing our 35-gallon Pay-As-You-Throw Bags.


Bags may be placed curbside on designated pick-up days. Be sure to place bags five feet from your blue cart(s). Or, bring the bags to the Convenience Collection Center for disposal. Remember, you paid the disposal fee when you purchased the bag.


Purchasing the bags at Plantation Publix, Winn Dixie or Walmart stores, is how you pay for your monthly garbage service. The amount you pay on your monthly utility bill, combined with a portion of the cost of the blue City bags, is the total cost of your garbage collection service, bulk pick-up, and recycling. (As a point of information, blue bag costs dropped significantly on October 1, 2016.) We now offer a smaller kitchen-sized bag at a lower cost.


Second, it is more aesthetically pleasing. Once the bags have been picked up, there are no unsightly trash bins lying along the street until someone comes home from work (or worse, home from vacation after a week away) to pick them up.


Only household trash that is prepared in the town's Pay-As-You-Throw blue bags will be collected. No exceptions. Each resident is limited to a maximum of four (4) 33-gallon trash bags collected per week.


REMINDER: Trash will continue to be one 36-gallon bag or (2) 15-gallon bags with a total weight not exceeding 40 lbs. per week per household, placed at the curb on your collection day in a barrel or not. The Town of Granby official blue trash bags are required for additional trash in excess trash of the allowed first bag(s). Again, no bag whether your first bag or excess bags cannot exceed a total weight of 40 lbs. each.


The city will collect the defunct blue bags beginning Wednesday and credit residents $2.60 per bag or $13 per roll. The money will count toward a household's Capital Area Recycling and Trash bill next quarter.


I actually tried doing just that only to get a note letting me know that in order for my trash to be picked up at the curb, I had to place it inside a blue City of Binghamton trash bag. It was the first I'd heard of such a thing.


BU Pipe Dream explains that weekly 170 or so tons of trash collected in Binghamton has to be taken to the Broome County Landfill where the City is required to pay a tipping fee of $45 per ton of trash.


Before the implementation of the blue trash bags, property taxes covered the tipping fee however, when the blue bags were introduced, property owners no longer had to cover the expense and instead, each individual was charged for the amount of trash they actually produced through the sale of the blue City garbage bags.


In January, Binghamton Mayor Jared Kraham announced the launch of a pilot program that would make the blue City trash bags available to be purchased in bulk online and delivered by Amazon for those who can't leave home easily. Through this program City residents can buy 20 large City bags for $46.75 through Amazon with free delivery.


Blue City trash bags can also be purchased on the second floor of the Binghamton City Hall as well as at most grocery stores and retail pharmacies - although you may have to ask for them at the register or customer service counter.


Any additional garbage must be placed in "Special City Bags" available at Public Works, Publix and Kroger located on Scenic Hwy in Snellville. Go to the information desk at both Publix and Kroger for assistance. The blue bags are imprinted with the city seal. The purchase of these bags will cover the cost of the extra garbage pick up. Your basic garbage and recycling will be provided to every homeowner at no additional charge. The "Special Blue Garbage Bag" is used for overflow garbage that will not fit into your standard Advanced cart or for bulk item pick up. When needed, residents should place the "Special Bags" alongside their regular cart on their scheduled day of collection. The cost of the "Special Bag" is $1.51 per bag. They are sold only by the box. Each box contains (20) bags and sells for $30.20 per box. Garbage outside your 1, 65-gallon cart will NOT be picked up if it is not in a "Special City of Snellville Blue Bag."


Do not put recyclables in plastic grocery bags, or line your curbside recycling bin with plastic trash bags. Heavy-duty clear plastic bags are only allowed if you do not have enough space for a blue wheeled cart. If you have questions, call 3-1-1.


Since the pay-as-you-throw program began in 2008, people have been recycling more and more in town, but there are still many calls to the each day asking what to do with trash that doesn't fit in the blue bags.


So, what can be recycled? Glass, plastic, metal, aluminum and thin cardboard can be put in the town's blue or green recycling bins (depending on where you live in town, the town rotates each week which color bins are picked up). Corrugated cardboard can be brought to the municipal garage on South Street weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Residents can also flatten, fold and fit the corrugated cardboard into a paper bag or recycling bin or cut and tie cardboard into 2-foot by 2-foot by 2-foot bundles.


All yard waste materials will be composted, so please do not place any trash in with your yard waste. Yard waste must be placed in containers clearly marked 'Yard Waste', in bundles or in paper compost bags and placed curbside on your regular collection day. Containers/bags should weigh no more than 50 pounds and branches must be tied in bundles, no longer than 4 feet. Be sure to leave a trash or recycling cart out until yard waste and/or Christmas trees have been collected. Yard waste will only be collected from households participating in the PAYT program.


According to the Windam Eagle, the Windham Town Council has voted unanimously to an agreement with Casella Waste to switch to an automated trash collection system, which would mean that residents no longer would need to bag their trash in blue bags purchased as local stores or the Windham Town Office. 041b061a72
