New Trash and Recycle Toter Options
Posted on Dec 26th, 2017
New Option for Smaller 32 Gallon Patriot Trash Toter and/or Larger 32 Gal Wheeled Recycle Bin with Lid
 
Would you like to trade in your 56 Gallon Patriot Trash Toter for a newer smaller 32 gallon toter or trade in your small recycle bin for a larger 32 gal covered bin on wheels? If so, please email us right away at info@unionmills.com and let us know.  There is no cost to the resident for the new replacements.
 
Currently our Board of Directors is finalizing a new 3 year contract for trash collections.  This will include a contractual clause that requires trash pickups before noon and also an option that would allow owners to trade in their 56 gallon toter for a smaller 32 Gallon Toter and/or exchange their small recycle bin for a larger 32 gallon covered recycle toter on wheels.  For some time, residents have expressed their desire for a smaller more convenient size toter.  Hopefully, this will help with some of the ongoing trash problems. Please let us know now if you interested in swapping out your toter. You can either send an email to info@Unionmills.com or fill out the two surveys on the Unionmills.com website.
