The City of Columbia Utilities Services is hosting a contactless drive-through exchange for garbage bag vouchers in two weeks at the Parks Management Center in Cosmo Park.
Following new city guidelines, all trash bags placed curbside for residential trash collection will need to be in a City-issued bag with the City logo.
Columbia residents will receive vouchers for 104 trash bags each year with extra bags available for purchase.
Because of the ongoing pandemic, the City will set up a contactless drive-through event for residents to redeem their vouchers without going into a store. The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday Jan. 19 through Friday Jan. 22 and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday Jan. 23.
The vouchers for residential customers are scheduled to be mailed on Monday, Jan. 11.
Bags will also be available at Gerbes, Hy-Vee, Menards, Moser's, Schnucks and City Hall.
The new regulations go into effect Feb. 1.
