The new trash carts for the city of Monroe have been in use for a couple of months now, and things seem to be going smoothly with them. One of the things to remember about them, though, is that if you need to change the size of trash carts you have, there is a fee for that.
So what happens when you purchase a home that has trash carts that are too large or too small for your needs?
We have checked with the city on how this situation will be handled. There is no fee for changing the cart sizes one time after you purchase a home in the city. Simply call the Streets and Sanitation Department at 608-329-2490 to initiate the exchange of the trash carts as a new home owner. Also, if you need a copy of the recycling pick up calender, here is the 2013 schedule.
There. One less thing to worry about when buying a home.
