NEW TRASH CANS FOR PENNINGTON GAP

THE TOWN OF PENNINGTON GAP IS WORKING TO HELP KEEP EMPLOYEES SAFE WHILE SUPPLYING TRASH CANS TO PENNINGTON GAP RESIDENTS. THESE NEW ROLLING TRASH CANS WILL START BEING ISSUED TODAY BY TOWN EMPLOYEES TO EACH PENNINGTON GAP HOUSEHOLD. THIS PROCEDURE WILL NOT ONLY HELP TOWN RESIDENTS BUT HELP KEEP THE TOWN’S SANITATION PERSONNEL SAFE WHILE DOING THIER JOB. THE TRASH IN THESE NEW CANS WILL BE COLLECTED WITH A NEW, HANDS FREE COLLECTION DEVICE WHICH WILL HOPEFULLY NOT ONLY MAKE IT SAFER FOR THESE EMPLOYEES BUT ALSO MAKE IT QUICKER AND EASIER TO COMPLETE THIS SERVICE.

ONE TRASH CAN WILL BE ISSUED AT NO COST TO EACH HOUSEHOLD BUT, IF MORE THAN ONE TRASH CAN IS NEEDED FOR YOUR HOUSEHOLD, YOU CAN OBTAIN ONE FROM THE TOWN FOR A MERE $5.00 CHARGE. THIS ADDITIONAL TRASH CAN WILL BE ADDED TO THE MONTHLY WATER BILL TO MAKE IT MORE CONVENIENT FOR HOUSEHOLDS NEEDING ONE.

WITH THIS CHANGE, THE TOWN OF PENNINGTON GAP TRASH POLICY WILL ALSO BE MODIFIED TO WORK WITH THESE NEW PROCEDURES.

TRASH WILL NOW ONLY BE PICKED UP FROM TOWN ISSUED CANS ONLY.
TRASHCANS MUST BE PLACED BESIDE THE CURB ON THE SCHEDULED PICK UP DAY FOR YOUR AREA.
TRASHCANS MUST NOT REMAIN BESIDE THE CURB AFTER BEING EMPTIED.
TRASH THAT IS NOT IN THE TRASHCAN WILL NOT BE PICKED UP.
THE ACCOUNT HOLDER FOR THE HOUSEHOLD WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRASH CAN.

IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF PENNINGTON GAP AND DO NOT RECEIVE YOUR NEW CAN, NEED ADDITIONAL CANS OR HAVE ANY QUESTIONS CONCERNING THIS NEW TRASH GUIDLINE, PLEASE CONTACT THE TOWN OF PENNINGTON GAP AT 546-1177.
