The local community relies on the City of Roswell’s Solid Waste Department to make sure trash is disposed of properly and safely. Funding for the department’s essential services – from weekly pickups of trash containers in alleys and at curbsides to operating the municipal landfill – is set up and maintained as an Enterprise Fund.
Roswell residents can learn more about these important services so many people rely on every day – and the financial system that keeps them operating – by watching the fourth installment of the City of Roswell’s “Money Matters” video series. The latest video features Solid Waste Director Abraham Chaparro discussing the variety of services provided by the department, which includes residential and commercial trash pickup, bulk-trash pickup, free landscaping mulch available to citizens, and operation of the landfill.
The video can be viewed on the city’s website and social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube). The first three videos in the “Money Matters” series – an Enterprise Funds overview, a look at lodgers’ tax, and a discussion of the city’s water and wastewater services – can also be found on the city’s website, Facebook page and YouTube channel.
