Winchester’s new trash receptacles are rolling out

The new roll off trash receptacles are being delivered by the City of Winchester.

If you haven’t received yours yet you can expect it in the next three weeks.

The new receptacles are being provided at no cost to the customer and will be maintained by the City.

Old containers can be used for recycling or if you prefer you can set it to the curb with a note telling the crew to take it away on your trash collection day.

The new receptacles are designed to put less stress on employees backs and arms as they can be wheeled to the collection truck and lifted by mechanical arms.

If you have any question you can direct those to winchester.gov/public-works/refuse.
