The Cart Delivery Process - A Photostory
How are 100,000 carts delivered? Here is a quick photo-story of the cart delivery process.
Carts are being distributed from three main areas - Ferndale, Royal Oak, and Troy.
The delivery crews load the carts onto trucks. These are rental trucks so depending on what city you live in, you may see a white truck, yellow truck or a trailer.
Once the crew arrives in the delivery area, the cart assembly process begins right on the back of the truck by adding the wheels to each cart.
Once the cart has been assembled, the information packet is attached to each cart, and the cart is rolled to the curb in front of each house.
Each cart delivery is recorded and tracked by the unique number of the front of the cart.
Each cart is delivered with information about how to use the cart including what recyclables to place in the cart. Be sure to remove this information and keep on hand for future reference.
You may start using your cart once you receive it. Here is a happy Ferndale resident who cannot wait to use her cart next week.
