Residents who live in areas selected will not have to pay any additional costs for the city’s curbside collection during the pilot project.

Organics carts and kitchen bins will be delivered to homes on weekdays from late August to mid-September. Residents will receive a letter with information and instructions.

Operations for the pilot program include using the city’s current fleet of trucks. The material will be taken to an established transfer station prior to being transported by Arrow Transport to its composting facility in Princeton.
