ONALASKA, WI (WKBT) -

Onalaska residents are starting to get their new garbage and recycling carts this week.

Barring inclement weather, the city engineer says everything will be delivered by Saturday.

The automated carts are replacing the old pick up method.

Residents can start using them any time, but must use them starting January 6th. Old cans can be thrown away at City Hall.

Also, pick up dates may be changing. That information should be delivered with the carts and is on the city's website.
