ADVANCED DISPOSAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Dear Residents, as you know cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) are rapidly spreading throughout our area. It has been determined by the CDC that the virus can remain viable lasting from hours on up to days on a variety of waste materials generated by residents. With that said, Advanced Disposal Services will be requiring that ALL WASTE BE BAGGED in order to be collected. Grocery bags containing waste will not be accepted as these are prone to breaking open and are the major cause for windblown trash on collection days. Loose trash will be left at the curb and not collected effective March 30th for all areas. If residents are using plastic trash containers, they must still BAG ALL WASTE prior to depositing in the container. This will eliminate windblown items while dumping the container. Bagging will NOT include recyclables. Recyclables shall remain un-bagged and continue as single-stream. This process is for the protection of Advanced Disposal employees, as well as the residents of New Britain Borough, in order to reduce the spread of the virus. Thank you for your cooperation.
