CITY OF GROSSE POINTE — Another batch of 64-gallon, wheeled refuse carts is on the way.

Some 500 carts were ordered last week from Bell Equipment of Lake Orion.

Bell’s price of $61 per cart totals $31,500.

City of Grosse Pointe residents can buy carts at cost from the public service department.

Bell supplied the city 500 toter carts five years ago.

Carts have 10-inch wheels, a handle, hinged lid and 10-year warranties.

“The carts have the city logo and a serial number,” said Gary Huvaere, public service supervisor.

Toter carts, like any trash bin, are for refuse only.

“Garbage is supposed to be bagged, even if it is in a can,” said Peter Dame, city manager.

City officials also intend to buy smaller carts for residents that don’t need 64-gallon containers.

“We are planning to provide 10 mini barrels to (the) elderly as a test to see whether a smaller bucket would be more accommodating,” Dame said.
