When will Arlington get wheeled carts for trash collection? It is so much cleaner and easier! We finally got them for recycle. When will we get them for trash?

Quick question…what about old computers, cell phones, tvs….items that no longer work… is there a separate recycle area just for electronics? Thanks.
