New compost bin rollout continues
Annapolis County garbage, recyclables going to Chester
The remaining batch of new compost carts destined for An- napolis County residents are slated to be delivered in the coming weeks.
The first set of new carts were rolled out starting Sept. 24.
New carts are grey and carry the municipal logo ‘ County of Annapolis, Naturally Rooted’ on the side, instead of the Valley Waste logo.
“The next three weeks should see the bins completely distributed,” Annapolis County CAO John Ferguson said Oct. 3. “We started at the eastern side of the county and are working to the western side.”
The acquisition of 9,500 new bins, at a cost of $ 572,600 plus HST, or just over $ 60 each, became necessary after the county failed to reach a purchase agreement with Valley Waste after Valley Waste stopped its service in Annapolis County effective Aug. 17.
