City Begins Toter Delivery; Asks Residents to Wait Until May

Haverhill Mayor James J. Fiorentini displays a 64-gallon toter.

Haverhill residents can expect to see the 64-gallon trash toters for the new automated trash pickup program delivered in front of their homes next week.

Mayor James J. Fiorentini reminded residents, in an e-newsletter released Wednesday, use of the toters by new trash trucks with side-mounted arms begins the first week in May.

“The trash people will deliver it to your home. They will try their best to leave it exactly where they want you to leave it when you fill it with trash starting the week of May 2,” Fiorentini said. “We cannot pick them up until the week of May 2, since the trash company will be using the old trucks until then.”

Meanwhile, a series of informational public meetings held by city officials since last month concludes with one beginning at 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 20 at John Greenleaf Whittier Middle School, 256 Concord St.

“We have tested this program for nearly two years.  Our pilot program was overwhelmingly popular. I am confident that most people will find it to be an upgrade to their current service,” Fiorentini added.  “Let me know after you try it.”

  1. If I remember right, Haverhill had to change to this program based on the fact that the trash company had bought these new trucks already. Do you think we have forgotten that ?
