On May 5, 2021, the City Council approved an amendment to the agreement with Waste Management adding the At Your Door (AYD) Special Collection® Service to the current contact. A Recycling Survey (2021) published to receive resident input regarding the program indicated 89% of respondents were either likely or very likely to use the service.
The program became effective on June 1, 2021. More information about the AYD program is available on Waste Management’s website.
