Thursday pickup areas will get new carts in April, Monday pickup areas will get new carts in May and Tuesday pickup areas will get their new carts in June.

Distribution progress updates will be posted on the city website, and signs will be posted in each area when carts are being distributed. Old carts should be left out in their normal collection spot when the signs are up to speed pickup and removal. Old carts will be recycled.

For questions about the program, call 3-1-1 or 847-448-4311.
