The City of Wauchula is pleased to announce that we are moving to automated garbage collection for our residential customers. The kickoff for the new system will start in a smaller test area and then be put into effect city wide for all household garbage. The wheeled trash cans will be delivered to households starting the week of August 20, 2018. More information on when collection will begin with the new cans and truck will soon follow. Automated garbage collection is a clean, safe and efficient way to collect household waste and we are excited to move in this direction!

Take a quick look at this video to see how the truck works.
