cog_trash_canThe City of Groton Sanitation Dept. does sell 96-Gallon Toters for $72.00 each.

The Universal design is compatible with automated and semi-automated lifters to fit onto our garbage truck. Toter Two-Wheeled Carts (Trash Cans) are virtually maintenance-free. Manufactured using a stress-free, Advanced Rotational Molding process, these carts are tough. The use of medium density polyethylene (MDPE), provides a superior strength-to-weight ratio not found in standard injection molded carts. They are easy to tilt and roll.

We will take only 1-2 cans or bags of yard clippings, brush or hedges with your trash.
