What to do with your old plastic trash can

If you recently received your 96-gallon trash cart and don’t know what to do with your old trash can, here is one opportunity. Take it to Rock-Tenn at 1775 S. West Street. Effective immediately, Rock-Tenn will provide, free of charge, a container to accept and recycle plastic trash cans. They only ask that you remove the metal bar that runs between the wheels with those cans that have them.

The dumpster will be labeled Plastic Trash Containers Only and will be located at the front of the property along with the usual containers for cardboard, phone books, and co-mingle.

If you don’t have a need to reuse your old trash can (yard waste, or whatever), consider recycling it!

(P.S. DPW says you can also put it out for heavy trash as one of your items, but you must leave a big enough note on it for the driver to know that is why it is there.)
