Starting in March residential trash collection will be handled by a new company in
Newport Beach, and the deadline for residents to place their
order for new trash carts is Monday, city officials announced.
On March 31, CR&R Environmental Services will start providing residential trash collection service to
those Newport Beach residents that currently have this service provided by the city of Newport Beach. The service include automated or semi-automated service
that requires the use of trash carts instead of cans, city officials
said in a news release.
Residents can order as many trash and recycling carts as they may need
for free. The carts vary in sizes
from 35, 64 or 96 gallons. CR&R will collect and recycle the old,
unwanted trash cans the week following the delivery of the new carts.
Separating recyclables in a separate cart is an option, not a
requirement. All trash will continue to be sorted at a materials
recovery facility where recyclables are removed.
Customers that do not place an order will receive one waste cart and one
recycling cart in an appropriate size for their neighborhood. The carts can be exchanged, or additional carts can be provided, at no cost to customers after the service transition is completed.
The new carts will be delivered in late March and in April, city officials said. CR&R will deliver the new carts gradually over that time period, on a neighborhood by neighborhood basis. CR&R will collect and recycle customers’ old, unwanted trash cans the week following the delivery of the new carts.
City Hall will be closed on Monday in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, but city officials said customers can order their carts (without their City water account number) by calling CR&R at 1-866-949-9694 or mailing back the Cart Order Form.
