SW-REQUEST: Trash Container Repair Request


Is there a fee to repair the container?

There is no cost for a trash container repair.

However, if the container is substantially damaged or otherwise incapable of effective use through no fault of the City, a new container may be provided at the fee of $50.00. 

When would the repairs be scheduled?

The container is serviced on the next scheduled service day. Please make sure the container is out front, visible, and accessible to the crew. 

How do I request repairs to my container?

By calling the City's 311 center or by filling out the webform here.
