Johnston’s City Council voted unanimously to have Metro Waste Authority oversee the contract for residential solid waste services. The City’s current waste hauler is Waste Management, Inc. Despite the change in haulers to ASI, residents will likely see no significant changes in service.
Residents can expect their garbage carts to swap with a Metro Waste Authority cart in mid to late June. The carts will be swapped out with the exact size residents currently have. Residents are encouraged to use their large items stickers before July 1, 2020. However, the City is willing to swap out large-item Waste Management stickers for Metro Waste Authority stickers at City Hall. Stickers are sold from the customer service departments of many local grocery stores, hardware stores and City Hall. They are also available online from Metro Waste Authority.
Beginning in July, if residents have questions regarding their garbage, recycling, or yard waste, connect with Metro Waste Authority by visiting www.WhereItShouldGo.com/Johnston or calling 515.244.0021.
There are no changes to the “Curb It” recycling program or the “Compost It” yard waste program.
