City reminds sanitation customers to select number of carts

Salina sanitation customers: have you made your waste cart selection yet?

In the mail this past week, City of Salina sanitation customers should have received their waste cart selection postcard, which enables customers to select the number of waste carts their households will utilize.

Prior to June 18, customers will need to select the number of new waste carts they want, either by mailing the perforated pre-paid postage section of the postcard (no return address or additional postage necessary) or by using the verification code found on the postcard to complete the process at SelectMyCart.com/Salina.

"When selecting the number of carts we urge customers to take into account that with automation collection no waste placed outside the cart will be collected and the lid must be closed. Also, all trash including yard waste will be collected in the same cart," the city noted in a news release.

Starting July 5, the new waste carts will be delivered and all previous City of Salina refuse and yard waste carts will be collected and recycled.

Every City of Salina sanitation customer will be delivered a minimum of one new waste cart. If customers wish to order more than one waste cart, each additional cart will be $2 more per month. If customers currently use one waste cart and one yard waste cart, it is recommended that they select "2 cart service" when ordering their waste carts.

Customers are also able to change the number of carts they want once per calendar year with no additional service fee. The cost of the additional cart(s) will be reflected on the customer's bill.

If you have any questions about the new waste cart selection process, please refer to the waste cart selection postcard.
