Garbage Stickers to replace City Garbage Bags

The City of Hancock’s bag vendor has been unable to produce garbage bags on a consistent and reliable basis; therefore, we have made the switch to garbage stickers instead of bags. Residents may use garbage bags of choice, with the requirement that the bags are a minimum of 1.2 mill thick and no greater than 35 gallons (bags must not exceed 30 pounds in weight).
Stickers will be sold in sheets of 5 for $5.00 each sheet. Stickers will be available for purchase at City Hall, Holiday Gas Station, Krist Oil, Keweenaw Co-op, Pat’s IGA, Risto’s Hardware. As the current inventory of bags is depleted at the different locations, they will be replaced with stickers.
City of Hancock trash stickers will need to be purchased and placed around the top of the bag where the bag ties.
Please contact Hancock City Hall (906)482-2720 with any questions in regards to this change.
Thank you
