Important Change In Trash Service

Posted: May 12, 2009

In an effort to save the city a substantial amount of taxpayer dollars (est. $154,000 yr.) and to reduce wear and tear on our streets as well as reduce air pollution and improve safety for the city, we have elected to reduce trash service from two times per week to once per week effective the second week of July.

If you are currently on the Monday / Thursday trash route your service will be on Mondays beginning July 6th.  If you are currently on the Tuesday / Friday route your service will be on Tuesdays beginning July 7th.   Due to the size and scope of the change a few Tuesday service homes will need to be changed to Monday.  You will be notified by post card if your day will change to Monday.  If you do not receive a card you will remain on Tuesday. Yard waste day will still be on Wednesdays for the entire city and every other week recycling will still be Thursdays.

All residents are entitled to (2) two of the 95 gallon rolling trash carts (the equivalent to 6 old style trash cans), if you would like an additional cart please call ID Customer Service @ 638-9000.  Also, if you would like to sign up for recycling service call City Hall @ 245-2762 and we will inform ID to add your address and deliver a hinged lid recycling cart.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in making this change.

If you have any questions or concerns please call ID Customer Service @ 638-9000 or City of Middletown @ 245-2762.

Thank You,

The City of Middletown and Industrial Disposal Co.
