  • Waste Management begins curbside trash and recycling collection in Dover July 1

    posted on: 6/27/2020

    Beginning on Wednesday, July 1, Waste Management, the city's new recycling and curbside solid waste vendor, will begin its five-year contract with the City of Dover. The City Council approved the new contract in February, following a five-year contract with Pinard Waste Services.

    "After an extensive review process, the City is excited to welcome Waste Management as its selected vendor for solid waste and recycling collection services," said Community Services Director John Storer. "Although residents will see Waste Management vehicles beginning July 1, very little will change with curbside collection of solid waste and recycling."

    For most residents and businesses, collection routes and days will remain the same, Storer said.

    "There may be adjustments on some streets as Waste Management refines its collection process, but the company is determined to make the transition as seamless as possible," Storer added.

    Waste Management will continue to collect curbside solid waste in City of Dover trash bags. Other trash bags will not be accepted. Although the cost of Dover trash bags will increase after July 1, bags purchased before July 1 will still be accepted. Beginning July 1, the retail price of City of Dover trash bags will be approximately $2.34 per 15-gallon bag and $3.91 per 30-gallon bag.

    All non-metal items too large to fit in a Dover trash bag, such as furniture, mattresses, toilets and carpets, will still require a bulky item tag. Bulky item tags can be purchased at the City Clerk’s Office, the Community Services facility on Mast Road, the Recycling Center and at most locations where city trash bags are sold. The cost of bulky item tags will increase to approximately $10 on July 1.
