New Toter Program Update

New Toter Program Update

Effective August 1, 2018, the City of Aberdeen designates the standard trash and recycling container to be 64 gallons.  Residents must use the Toters provided by the City for Trash and Recycling.  Residential units that exceed the disposal of trash on a regular weekly basis must secure a permit and pay additional annual fees to the Finance Department at City Hall.  Bulk fees are now in effect for any additonal pick-ups.  Note:  Each residential unit is allocated one "free" pickup per fiscal year (Jul 1 through June 30). Those residents that wish to decline Trash and Recycling services must notify CIty Hall and submit a form.  It will be processed accordingly and Public Works will retrieve the City containers.   

We do not have any special assistance for elderly or disabled residents utilizing the Toters.  I encourage those residents to seek assistance from their neighbor or make other arrangements if it becomes a hardship.  The Department of Public works performs 4,600 stops each week to service trash and recycling. It is the resident's responsibility to bring trash and recyling to the curb.

We will continue to monitor and evaluate this new program and make adjustments as needed in the future.  Please be patient.  See the links below for more information and forms.
