Waste Management Division
Beginning July 1st, 2020, Mayor Eugene W Grant, The Seat Pleasant City Council, and the dedicated employees of The City of Seat Pleasant are launching new and improved services in celebration of the newly founded Environmental Justice Department (EJD): Waste Management Division.
In continuing our efforts for smarter services for our residents, we've obtained new state-of-the-art equipment, more advanced features, and have established more efficient waste management services.
In doing so, we've published our new EJD Magazine (PDF). This publication serves as a visual reference of services and features pertaining to The Waste Management Division and as a guide of schedule of services. The publication is available as a free download here on our site and is arriving in your mailbox in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please use this page to learn more about your new smart(er) services read a personal message from Mayor Grant.
Smarter Equipment, Smarter Service
Beginning July 1st, 2020, The City of Seat Pleasant will operate the new Loadmaster Legacy 3 to 20 Yard Loader. Our new Waste Management vehicle is powered by "3rd Eye." The 3rd Eye Cam will capture our drivers' actions, allowing us to provide safe, secure, and efficient service to residents while identifying and assessing possible risk factors. In addition, our new top-of-the-line operating system is equipped with safety features such as Sign Detection and a Smart Reporting Data System, which will ensure that our team will operate in compliance with state-mandated speed limits while collecting critical data so that we proactively and continuously improve our service.
