Bismarck Public Works Service Operations will continue a garbage collection set-out study October 11-14, to evaluate the volume of materials being set out for collection with garbage and recycling containers each week. This includes extra bags of materials, yard debris, and small bulky items that are set outside of garbage and recycling containers.
The city has partnered with HDR Engineering to do the set-out study. Residents may notice HDR in their neighborhood photographing the contents of trash bins from October 11-14.
Nothing will be removed from the trash, they are simply looking for ways to help determine the volume of garbage set-out for collections. The results of the survey will be used for future management of set-out materials.
