Changes Coming for Trash Collection in Winfield City Limits

With the purchase of a new garbage truck, which should arrive any day now, the City of Winfield is making some major changes in the way they handle trash collection for residents in the city limits.

New trash cans issued to Winfield residents.If you live in the city limits of Winfield and are serviced by the City of Winfield for trash collection, you will be issued a new 96-gallon, wheeled trash collection can. The new trash cans are being distributed by the City and residents can begin picking up their cans now at the street department office in downtown Winfield.

Rob Bolton, the head of Winfield's Streets and Sanitation Department outlined the procedures for the new trash collection system adopted by the City. Below are the main points of the new system:

  • Each resident will be issued one trash container, which will be included in the regular monthly residential garbage fee if $14. Up to two additional cans may be added for a fee of $7 per month for each additional can. Residents will be limited to no more than three cans.
  • All residents who have trash picked up by the City if Winfield will be required to use the cans provided by the city and no other types of receptacles will be serviced by the City.
  • Each can will be numbered and assigned to the resident.
  • Residents must place cans at the street and facing in the proper direction for the automated truck to access the can.
  • All trash must be inside the can. No additional bags of trash or other items will be picked up.
  • No hazardous material such as battery acid, building materials, bricks, rocks, wood or scrap metal should be placed in the cans.
  • Cans should be placed on the street by 7:00 a.m. on collection day and should be removed from the street no later than 7:00 a.m. the following morning.

"We want to provide efficient trash collection service to our residents and this new garbage truck and can system will allow us to have one man handle the collection instead of requiring three men under our current system," said Bolton.

Making Room for Homeschoolers "Back to Homeschool" Party August 28th

Back to HomeschoolIn the past decade, the rise of homeschooling has had a tremendous impact on public libraries including the Winfield Public Library.

78% of homeschooling parents use the public library as their primary resource of learning materials. Yet, most librarians are unequipped and unprepared to reach this specific group of patrons. The Winfield Public Library is seeking to bridge the gap between libraries and homeschoolers.

Notice to Serve - Become a Member of a Municipal Board

As a governing body, the City of Winfield has various boards that help facilitate needs for municipal functions. These boards include but are not limited to the Winfield Board of Education, Winfield Housing Authority Commission, Winfield Library Board, Winfield Park and Recreation Board, Winfield Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Adjustments and the Winfield Water and Sewer Board.

The current Mayor and Council would like to provide an opportunity for Winfield residents to serve as a member of one of these boards. Therefore, in order to give notice positions are available, the city will be posting these as the terms end and the need arises.

Individuals serving as board members are usually given the opportunity to serve additional terms if they are so willing. However, if a board member’s term is expiring and he or she no longer wishes to serve, this becomes an opportunity for others to serve, possibly bringing fresh, new ideas to that particular board and ultimately the City.

If you are interested in serving your community i this capacity, please contact the City Clerk’s office at (205)487-4337.
