Augusta Residents, as many of you are aware, there are changes coming to the single sort program in Augusta:
Effective Feb. 4, 2019, the single sort containers currently located at the Augusta City Center and the Police Department will be removed. This is being done due to contamination, items left outside the containers when they are full and non-Augusta residents and businesses using them without permission.
There will still be single sort containers located at Hatch Hill and Augusta Public Works and available during normal business hours. Hatch Hill hours of operation are 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Tuesday to Saturday and Public Works hours are 7:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday. Both locations are closed on legal holidays. We are looking into the possibility of potential extended hours for the Public Works location, further information will be available later.
The Hatch Hill container is available to Augusta residents and residents of the contracting communities. If residents from Augusta or one of the contracting communities bring in only recycling then Hatch Hill takes it free of charge. Hatch Hill does not take recyclables from commercial haulers.
The Public Works container is for City of Augusta residents only.
We will post signs at the City Center and Police Department containers to let people know when they will be removed.
