The company is asking Fairway residents to leave their trash and recycling bins at the curb until 6 p.m. on their normal trash days so the company’s crews can install the tag technology, which allows administrators to track trucks on their routes and ensure they are completed. The company has also launched new websites for customers to report problems. For Fairway residents, that website is wcawaste.com/fairway.
