- On June 21st, Marceline City Council entered into a five (5) year agreement
with Advanced Disposal Services Solid Waste Midwest, LLC to provide solid waste
and recycling services the residents of the City of Marceline. As with any new
agreements, some things will change and some things will remain the same. Here
is a breakdown of how this new agreement will affect our residents:
Solid Waste Service (Trash
Residential solid waste curbside pick-up will remain on Tuesdays each week.
Pick-up will be delayed by one day following a holiday. For example - July 4th
falls on a Monday this year, so pick-up will be on Wednesday, July 6th instead
of Tuesday. Containers are to be placed at the curb or alley for collection no
earlier than 6:00 pm preceding the collection day. Containers must be removed
from the curb by 11:59 pm on the day of collection and placed in the most
inconspicuous location as possible pursuant to Paragraph C of Section 230.030 of
the Municipal Code.
One change is the addition of
bi-weekly recycling services. Advanced Disposal will be delivering a recycling
cart to residential units between Tuesday, July 5th and Friday, July 8th. With
the delivery of these carts, each unit will receive informational cards and a
recycling calendar magnet. Bi-weekly recycling pick-up will begin Tuesday, July
12th. Acceptable recycling materials include: #1 and #2 plastics, steel cans
(vegetable cans), aluminum cans, paper (junk mail, newspapers, magazines, etc)
and cardboard (bundled if not in container). Pick-up will be delayed by one day
following a holiday. Containers are to be placed at the curb or alley for
collection no earlier than 6:00 pm preceding the collection day. Containers
must be removed from the curb by 11:59 pm on the day of collection and placed in
the most inconspicuous location as possible pursuant to Paragraph C of Section
230.030 of the Municipal Code.
Advanced Disposal will collect bulky waste twice per year, once in May and once
in November. The dates will be announced by the City in advance. Bulk items
exceeding 10 yds may require the resident to contract separately with Advanced
Disposal at their own expense. Additional information on Bulk Waste is
attached. White Goods will also be collected during the bulk waste collection
for a fee of $10.00 each for Non-Freon and $25.00 each for Freon white goods.
It is the responsibility of the residential customer to insure that prior to
disposal, white goods are empty of all foods and liquids and that any CFCs and
PCBs have been evacuated and captured by a certified technician in accordance
with all applicable law, and the doors have been removed from freezers and
refrigerators. Note: Advanced Disposal is not required to collect White Goods
that do not meet these standards.
Billing will remain the same. Residents will see the Standard Residential Rate
for solid waste and recycling services of $12.29 on their August bill.
Residents that qualify for the Senior Residential Rate will see the rate of
$9.86 for solid waste and recycling services on their August bill. To qualify
for the Senior Residential Rate, residents must be a minimum of 65 years old.

Monday-Friday between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm to verify they are age 65 years or
