A release from the Harrison County Utility Authority said each cart will come with fact sheets, answers to common resident questions, and final route map and pickup schedule. All pickups will occur on the service day listed on the route map — with garbage, trash/debris and recycling picked up on the same day.

HCUA and Team Waste will be making available to each city hall and Harrison County Courthouse samples of the actual garbage and recycling carts for public viewing, along with hard copies of the cart information.

HCUA and other representatives will be on hand at the following community meeting to answer questions. In addition, Donald Scharr, executive director, will attend various city and county meetings to offer updates during public comment periods, as well as speak at various civic groups, over the next four to six weeks.

Unless noted, meetings are from 6-7 p.m.
