The City of Amarillo’s Solid Waste department will host two meetings to gather public input on implementing cart services to address homes that have unsafe alleyways and dumpsters in the front of homes, according to a city news release.
The community meetings will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Downtown Amarillo Public Library, Room AB, 413 E. 4th Ave., and from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Southwest Amarillo Public Library, 6801 W. 45th Ave.
Approximately 16,500 customers would be impacted by the proposed changes, including those who have their dumpsters placed in streets or in front of homes, or those who have dead-end alleys, according to the release.
The benefits of cart-based trash collections can include cleaner and safer alleys and neighborhoods, improved collection efficiency, cost savings and equal services city-wide, according to the release.
