Conversion to automation

From this



To this

Common concerns


Ugly large cans difficult
to maneuver, particularly
elderly and disabled


Actual practice has not borne
this out in benchmarked
communities, regardless best
practice will be to offer smaller
cans for the over 55 and disabled
communities


Not enough room for
households refuse in
single cart


96Gallon cans have proven to be
more than adequate in all towns
studied.


Displacement of workers


Current status is opportune time
due to period of retirements
anticipated without affecting
negatively any workers


Enforcement of non compliance


1
st

month learning curve
and reminders using
“oops” tags


“oops” tag to residents
whose carts are
misplaced along with
informative flyer



After 1
st

month garbage
cans not in compliance
or not placed in
appropriate cans will not
be picked up
