Waste Management has officially wrapped up its efforts to replace about 4,800 trash carts in Marble Falls following a logistical error that deleted deliveries to homes on streets with names that begin with “V” and “W.”
Waste Management representative Matt Myers appeared before the Marble Falls City Council at its regular meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 21, to officially report that the company had concluded the replacement project.
“The issues we’ve had with the deployment here in Marble Falls have been resolved,” Myers said. “I feel confident going forward that things will go smoothly with any of the cart issues.”
“We did a driver audit on anyone who had bags of trash out as a red flag that they needed their cart,” Myers said. “I also made proactive calls for residents that lived on streets that started with W and V, and there were some actions there that needed to be completed.”
