Cart Rental Fees
|Mobilization fee (covers 1–4 carts)
|Additional garbage cart
|Additional recycling cart
|Additional organics cart
The mobilization fee is a base fee for rental. It covers up to 4 carts. Additional carts will carry the per cart fee. For every 20 carts, you will be charged another mobilization fee, each of which will cover another 4 carts.
For example, if you rent:
- 7 carts, 4 will be covered under your mobilization fee, and 3 will carry the per cart fee.
- 20 carts, 4 will be covered under your mobilization fee, and 16 will carry the per cart fee.
- 21 carts, 8 will be covered under the two mobilization fees, and 13 will carry the per cart fee.
- 43 carts, 12 will be covered under the three mobilization fees, and 31 will carry the per cart fee.
We count recycling and organics carts first. So if you rent two of each kind of cart (six total), the two recycling and two organics carts will be covered under the mobilization fee, and the two garbage carts will be charged the per cart fee.
Possible extra fees
Any extra fees will be charged after the event.
