The contractor will service some existing wildlife carts (to be determined on a case-by-case basis). Wildlife Resistant Trash service is on an annual basis (12-month minimum).
Mountain Waste and Recycling will be able to service existing wildlife carts in the "Rear Load Truck" section of town. The rear load trucks are manually operated thus owner carts can be utilized. The rest of town will be serviced by Automatic Side Load trucks and will require these addresses to utilize compatible carts leased from Mountain Waste as part of this program. The cost of the wildlife-resistant service reflects the higher capital cost of the carts and the average damage rate at approximately 1.5 to 2.5 years for cart replacement.
Households that already have wildlife-resistant carts that are not compatible with the service trucks have the option to participate in the wildlife cart buy-back program which will cover up to 75% of the original purchase price of the cart with a max of $225 per household.
