New Curbside Trash and Recyclables Collection Service to Start July 1
ASDA Enterprises Inc. has been selected to be the next provider of curbside trash and recyclables collection for the City of Burlington. ASDA is a company local to Burlington that has been providing trash and recyclables collection services regionally since 2006. The cost of service provided by ASDA will result in an over 6% reduction to trash and recyclables collection costs. Other competing proposals contained 10-30% cost increases and would have cost the community hundreds of thousands of dollars more for service.
- All of the trash collection services that residents are used to will stay the same.
- Your collection day will remain the same.
- Weekly trash collection will continue to be unlimited and placed at the curb in either bags or the container of your choosing.
- Bulk item collection will continue to be weekly and unlimited.
- Recyclables collection will now be provided weekly and the amount will be unlimited!
Please note, ASDA’s collection method is not automated and does not require a large wheeled cart. Like trash collection, residents have the freedom to choose what type of container to use for their recyclables. ASDA prefers, and will provide each resident with 18-gallon totes. But residents are not limited to just using the totes. Should a resident choose to use a different container to place their recyclables for collection they are free to do so! ASDA will collect recyclables in any container up to 96 gallons in size (the same size as the wheeled carts used by John’s). For a one-time fee $60, ASDA can provide residents with a wheeled cart to use in recyclables collection. Or residents can buy a cart or containers from the vendor of their choice. This flexibility in container size gives residents a new level of freedom to determine what works best for them and their household! And an increase to weekly collection now makes recycling easier than ever.
