I’m a senior and I’m not sure if I need a small cart and what size would be best?

First, if you are considering a smaller cart we recommend that you visit the Community Center located at 1 Monticello Blvd. where there are sample carts available and try them out.  If you are considering a smaller cart the middle size 64-gallon cart is the most advisable option for both refuse and recycling. It is approximately 44” high and offers good stability when wheeling the cart to the curb. All the carts have large wheels and maneuver easily. The smallest 32-gallon carts are significantly smaller and are only approximately 36” high.  This height might cause some individuals to have to bend over when trying to wheel the cart to the curb.  Smaller cart orders must be received by July 26th.
