The City of Columbia Solid Waste Utility is seeking public input on the future of residential refuse collection.

Solid Waste is evaluating residential curbside refuse collection in the City. The Utility is committed to making refuse collection as efficient as possible for our customers.

The City of Columbia has hosted several meetings in order to form a shared community vision for residential refuse collection.

A meeting held Jan. 10 saw approximately 180 residents provide feedback with staff.

At the Jan. 31 meeting, the public had the opportunity to have one-on-one discussions with Utilities staff members in order to learn about the process and to ask questions about refuse collection in Columbia.

Below is a picture of three roll carts that were on display at the Jan. 31 public meeting. These carts are samples of the carts being considered. The color for the carts has not been determined.


Roll cart size from left to right are: 35 gallons, 65 gallons, and 95 gallons.

We want to hear from you!

If you were unable to attend any of the meeting, you are asked to leave comments or questions on this page through Friday, Feb. 10. Please complete the short survey below so we can better understand the perspectives of our customers.

This page will be updated throughout the life cycle of the project. Please check back for any updates.
