⇒ There has been an influx of contractor solicitation throughout our area since the storms the other night.  While we understand many of these contractors are professionals, we  also want to make sure our citizens are protected!  Please be cautious of any messages, whether it be by mail, phone or in person, from contractors offering free estimates        and/or to do work on your property.  Door to door solicitation within the City limits of Canton is illegal, unless the solicitor has first received a permit from the City Council to do so.  With any contractor, it is a good idea to gather as much information about them, (such as license, reference, and insurance info), prior to releasing any of your personal information or agreeing to any work.  Please understand, we know that there are several credible and fantastic contractors that work throughout our city on a daily basis, however, especially as a community with a significant number of older citizens, we feel it’s important share this information!

⇒ Effective 3/1/2021, a service provider polycart will be furnished as part of the monthly curbside garbage collection service for those utility customers that subscribe to the City's trash service. During the month of February, each residence will receive one 95-gallon polycart. Each residence will be given one cart. Additional carts may be obtained by calling City Hall at 903-567-2826. The polycart will remain the property of Sanitation Solutions. Damaged and/or stolen polycarts will be replaced at no charge to the customers. All garbage waste generated at the residence should be placed inside the polycart. The residence will also be allowed up to three items outside the cart (bagged trash, bundled limbs, or a combination of both). Polycarts should be placed at the curb no later than 7 a.m. the morning of the day of collection. It is the resident’s responsibility to take the polycart into their yard within 24 hours of being emptied. The area around the polycart should be kept in a clean and sanitary condition and must comply with all other City regulations regarding trash pickup.
