All Your Garbage Must Go In The Bins

Today marks the first day that the new trash bin automation system begins in Minot.

On day one of the new system there were still a few unanswered questions. 

Here’s Alexus Arthur with mroe

Nearly 12,500 new bins were delivered and were sitting on the edge of the driveway.

Although, some residents had extra trash that was lying beside the bin or sometimes was even overflowing.

The Minot Public Works Assistant Director told me that if you have additional trash that IS NOT in the bin — it will be left behind.

The alternative options are to fit it in your trash bin and wait for the next pick up or you can call Public Works and they will come pick it up for an additional fee.

“We instituted like a bulk collection service. You have to call if you have additional you know bulky items that don’t fit in the can and then we’ll come and pick those up and it’s 10 dollars per item for bulk collection.” said Jason Sorenson, Public Works Assistant Director.

Sorenson adds that it is best if you you keep the trash can lid closed because then trash doesn’t fly around.

If your trash bin is too small — you can get a bigger one through Public Works.
