Toter Frequently Asked Questions
Toter trash carts are coming to Harrisonburg in Spring 2021. Your selection of either a 48- or 96-gallon cart will be dropped off at residents' homes prior to the program's launch in Spring 2021.
Residents are responsible for taking their own, presorted, recyclable materials to the center or mobile unit. Once at the drop-off location, the items will need to be placed into the appropriately labeled container. An attendant will be on-site to provide assistance.
When you no longer have a use for an item it doesn’t mean it is trash. Consider donating it to charity, selling the item or giving it away.
