According to the City of New Bedford, the new trash carts are being delivered according to the day you set out your trash. The delivery crews are currently working in Monday’s (north end) route. Residents who normally set their trash out on Monday should see their carts by the end of this week. Next week the delivery crew will start on Tuesday’s trash routes.
It should take approximately 5 or 6 days to complete Tuesday and then they will move into Wednesday’s area and so on. Some residents may receive a trash cart one day and a recycling cart the next day. Sometimes your neighbor will receive a trash cart one day and you will receive a trash cart the next day. Crews will be delivering Monday through Saturday 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. until the entire city has been completed.
If you live in Monday’s area and have not received both the trash cart and the recycling cart by next week, please call (508) 961-3008.
