Taking A Stand: Automated trash pick-up

Posted: Updated:

Todd Chamberlain of Allied Waste has this guest editorial about the new automated trash system being used in Evansville.

"Beginning January 2013, in support of the Clean Evansville initiative, the city of Evansville will move to an 'automated" trash and recycling collection system.

Automated trash & recycle pick-up will improve the appearance of our streets and alleyways. The new automated trash trucks pick-up the new carts and dump the content of the carts into the body of the truck. It's quicker. It's cleaner. It's a better way.

This system also increases public safety because your new containers, on wheels will be easier to manage and are less likely to blow over on windy days. Automation also protects public health by reducing odors and helps keep away unwanted pests.

New ninety-six-gallon carts, will be delivered to your homes at no additional cost. These carts will "containerize" the waste, allow more recycling capacity, and create a uniform collection method that enhances our streets.

Automation is easy for the resident, cleaner for the neighborhood, and safer for everyone.

For your community, "automation" is the right choice."
