The new trash program will be delayed to August.The manufacturer of the new trash bins residents will use, delivered approximately five hundred 32 gallon rolling containers which is smaller than the Town required.
"About 500 were delivered before the Town discovered they did not meet our required specification of 35 gallon," says Department of Public Work's superintendent Michael Lavin.
The proper size carts need to be manufactured and have a delivery date of the middle of July. "For residents that received the incorrect cart, we are asking them to place the cart out on their normal trash day the first week of July," Lavin says. "It will be emptied and then collected."
Wrentham will start the new automated process in the first week of August. "Our new contractor, E.L. Harvey, will collect the trash manually for the month of July," Lavin says. "Residents may continue to utilize their current container until they receive the new cart."
The recycling carts will begin to be delivered Monday, June 27. If residents have not received a recycling cart by Friday, July 1, call the Public Works Department at 508-384-5477.
