(COLUMBIA, MO) ~ The City of Columbia Solid Waste Utility is hosting an Interested Parties meeting to discuss the implementation of automated residential curbside collection and potential requirements related to where roll carts should be stored between collection days. The meeting will take place on Thursday, Dec. 14, 2023, from 5 to 7 p.m. in Conference Room 1A/1B at City Hall, 701 East Broadway.

Beginning in March 2024, the Solid Waste Utility will transition to the use of refuse carts and automated collection for residential curbside collection. The Utility is looking for public input on the storage of roll carts between collection days. According to City ordinance, roll carts can be placed at the curb no earlier than 4 p.m. the day before the customer's scheduled collection day and must be removed from the curb no later than 10 p.m. on the customer's collection day; however, there are no specific requirements about where they should be stored outside of that time frame other than it must be on private property.
