Waste & Recycling

(Last updated: March 22, 2022)

Loraas Disposal provides each occupied residence with three 95-us gallon wheeled carts for the collection of waste, recycling & organics.  Each cart has a serial number and is assigned to the residence. Do not paint or mark your address on your cart.  Vandalized, stolen or damaged carts will be replaced at the resident’s expense. Collection of waste and recycling is alternated on a bi-weekly basis.
