Starting in July, the City of Agawam, Mass., will switch over to an automated trash collection system, which is expected to provide cleaner streets and neighborhoods and decrease overall disposal costs. Each eligible household will receive a 65-gallon trash cart and a 96-gallon recycling cart, which will be distributed starting in early June.
To help residents prepare for the new collection system, the city is launching a public awareness campaign that includes helpful information about the automated collection process, bulk collection, route schedules, proper cart locations and more.
