The new 95-gallon rollaway trash cans—one for refuse, the other for
recycling—may have been delivered to the front of your home, but if
your garbage was collected from the alley before you got the
rollaways, it’ll still be collected from the alley now.
That word from Chesterton Street Commissioner John Schnadenberg, who told
the Chesterton Tribune today that there’s been some confusion about
where folks should put the rollaways for collection.
•Folks who’ve always had roadside collection still have it.
•Folks who’ve always had alley collection also still have it.
Meanwhile, residents who previously rented rollaways and still have them may
call Republic Services d/b/a Able Disposal at 929-1150 ext 1594 to arrange
for a pickup of the old rollaway.
Schnadenberg noted that all households in town, including those who’ve been
using rented rollaways, received two brand-new ones.
Able Disposal will no longer collect any recycling from the little 11-gallon
yellow bins. Those bins are the property of the Town of Chesterton. You may
keep them and use them as staging areas for your recycling—before emptying
them into the green-lidded rollaway—or you may call the Street Department at
926-2222 to arrange for a pickup of your bin.
Schnadenberg noted that there’s a good chance that any questions you may
have about the rollaways will be answered on the town’s municipal website.
