New Spencer Trash Pickup Starting June 3rd

Spencer, IA (KICD)–The entire city of Spencer will officially make the move to automated trash and recycling pickup starting this Monday.

Public Works Director Mark White tells KICD News that all residents should have received their new containers by this point.

White says that garbage pickup schedules will not change for anyone. Recycling will be picked up once every two weeks.

Pickup calendars are posted at www.spencerrecycles.com and can be obtained at Spencer City Hall.

Instructions were included with the containers noting that the containers must be moved to the street with the arrow on top of the carts pointing towards the street.

White says the larger recycling carts will hopefully lead to more recycling by Spencer residents. Some benefits include saving landfill space and reducing costs.
