Curbside Trash Changes Announced by City of Columbia

Staring February 1st, Columbia’s Solid Waste Utility will require all curbside trash to be in city-issued bags with the city’s logo.

According to the Solid Waste Director the move will make it more equitable.

Columbia city trash customers will receive 2 trash and 2 recycling vouchers this month and again in June.

Residents will receive vouchers for 104 trash bags each year with extra bags available for purchase if needed.

The bags will be sold at local grocery stores and customers can buy more bags there.

The new guidelines do not include the return of curbside recycling, as the city says it is working to find a solution to the recycling issues.
