Glass Carts – McMinnville Residents
McMinnville residents now have the option of a 32 gallon mixed glass cart at no extra charge. The glass carts are serviced once per month, and residents may place glass bottles and jars of any color in their blue glass cart. This service is offered to McMinnville residents only, and is included in residents’ regular collection package.
