Can I order a smaller refuse and/or recycling cart?

Smaller cart options are reserved for seniors (65 and over) only who feel that they may have difficulty maneuvering a larger trash or recycling cart. The city may contact recent applicants for smaller carts to verify that they meet the age requirements.
