What if I need my cart replaced?
Carts that are broken due to damage incurred during the collection are reported by the driver for replacement at no charge. Residents are encouraged to contact LRS if they notice damage to the cart during the collection process to request a replacement cart.
If damages occur to the cart due to other reasons, please contact LRS to request a replacement cart. A $25.00 exchange fee will be applied and billed to the resident if requesting a new cart due to damage not incurred during the collection process or odors
Is this considered garbage?
Latex paint is considered regular garbage but it must be completely dried, with the lid off so the driver is able to see inside the can.
