Much like your home, your curbside collection carts need maintenance. After your next collection, take a few minutes to clean the carts with a mild detergent to remove food residue and reduce odors. Another industry tip: use a peppermint scented solution to deter rodents and deodorize.
If you notice normal wear and tear or damage, call (239) 252-2380 to request repairs or replacement of the cart originally issued to your residence. However, if you have intentionally modified the cart, damaged it through neglect from a DIY project, or improperly disposed of dangerous materials, you will incur a replacement fee.
