New trash cans will be delivered
The city of Nappanee has contracted with Borden Waste-Away to provide 96-gallon wheeled carts for all residents. Those carts will begin to be delivered, free of charge, to homes beginning this week. Beginning the week of June 30 all trash must be placed in the cart to be picked up.
If residents prefer a 65-gallon cart instead after the larger carts are delivered, they can contact Borden Waste Away directly. Second carts are available for a small charge. Any bags outside the cart must have a bag tag on the neck of the bag. Those will be available at Martin’s Super Market for $1.50 each. Additionally, recycling is available by contacting Borden directly to set up direct billing. Borden’s will also pick up two odd-sized items per residence per month.
