broken lids and wheels to the solid waste office at (307)235-8246
. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. To keep your container clean, follow these tips:
- Bag all trash. This will keep your container free from odor and mess. It is also a city of Casper ordinance.
- Double bag pet wastes. When you clean your yard of dog wastes or empty a cat litter box, double bag the waste. This keeps the bag from breaking in your container or when it is emptied into the garbage truck.
- Do not put dead animals, fish guts, or other animal remains in your trash can. Take these items to the animal waste cell at the landfill. You can utilize the free balefill pass to dispose of these wastes.
If your container happens to become dirty or have odor you can clean the container. Clean the container using dish soap, baking soda and water. Use an old broom to scrub the container and then empty the contents onto your lawn. Remember, bagging your trash will prevent odor and mess.
