New Contracter to Manage Corolla Curbside Collections
Currituck County property owners and property managers on the Outer Banks should not experience any interruption in services as a new contractor takes over trash and recycling collection in Corolla.
Beginning January 1, 2014, Bay Disposal Inc. will manage the residential curbside collection program in Corolla. Bay Disposal was selected for the contract after Currituck County staff completed a competitive bidding process. The current contractor, Waste Management, will continue through the end of its contract period on December 31, 2013. Waste Management has a separate contract to collect and haul items from Currituck's Recycling Centers.
During the transition of contractors, Corolla customers should expect the curbside services to continue as normal. Separate containers for trash and recycling will be collected in the same manner as is currently practiced.
Currituck County will continue to provide each household with one container for recyclable materials. Each household will receive a new container from the county, to be delivered by Bay Disposal during the time period between Christmas and New Year's Day.
Customers who lease trash containers and/or extra recycling containers from Waste Management may continue to do so. Customers may also choose to lease containers from Bay Disposal. All items will be collected regardless of which company a customer leases a container from.
In addition, customers may purchase their own containers provided they are compatible with the automated collection trucks. Containers must be a 96 gallon roll-out cart with an upper catch plate and lower catch bar on the front. These may be purchased at businesses such as Lowe's or Home Depot.
