At the September 19, 2017 Common Council meeting, the City of Lodi agreed to a new contract with Columbia County Solid Waste. This new contract includes the use of refuse and recycling carts.
Refuse and recycling carts will be distributed in early December 2017 to all units within the city.
Columbia County Solid Waste will deliver the carts to each unit.
Units include single-family dwellings, all dwellings within duplexes, condominiums, and apartment buildings of five units or less, as well as small businesses that elect to use city refuse and recycling carts.
Each refuse and recycling cart distributed is 95-gallons in size. If 95-gallon carts are too large, qualified residents or businesses can elect to exchange the 95-gallon carts for 65-gallon carts one time only by February 28, 2018 by contacting Columbia County Solid Waste.
Only items placed inside the carts will be collected. Full plastic bags placed inside the carts are acceptable.
No. Refuse and recycling will be collected Wednesdays between the hours of 7:00 AM and 8:00 PM.
No, refuse will be collected on a weekly basis while recycling will be collected bi-weekly (every other week).
Once carts have been distributed, City of Lodi garbage bags and the open blue recycling bins are no longer required to dispose of refuse and recycling. All refuse and recycling must be disposed of in the cart. Residents and businesses should plan ahead with their purchases of garbage bags. Blue recycling bins can either be used for other purposes or can be recycled.
The annual refuse and recycling program fee will be $147 per unit. The program fee will be placed as a special fee on property tax bills.
The refuse (or trash) cart should hold the same materials as you currently place in the City of Lodi trash bags. No liquids, electronics, hazardous materials, or recyclables are permitted in the refuse cart.
Any items that are currently accepted as recycling material by Columbia County Solid Waste. A list of acceptable recycling materials is located at the Columbia County Solid Waste website.
Carts can be stored in garages, along the sides of properties, or behind properties. Storage of carts in the front of properties is not permitted.
Each refuse and recycling carts are the property of Columbia County Solid Waste.
