New Waste Removal Carts,
Automated Collection Prove Successful
It’s been one year since the City of Kerrville and Republic Services made the switch to standardized carts and an automated waste collection system, and the city is excited to share the positive results of this change with residents.
The city’s goal is to divert as much waste away from the landfill as possible. The current waste diversion rate is between 25% and 30%, which is a significant improvement over the previous system which averaged a 10% to 15% diversion rate per month.
The new carts have also aided in enhancing the overall appearance of city streets. Previously, debris and litter often spilled from bags or smaller receptacles. Since switching to the larger, uniform containers, crews have observed a significant reduction in the amount of area waste pollution.
The City of Kerrville’s Solid Waste Division wants to thank everyone for their patience and cooperation during the transition process this past year.
