Note: The following is a message from Borden Waste Away Services.
Beginning February 1, 2018, Borden Waste-Away Service, Inc. will begin collecting residential trash for the City of Goshen, fulfilling their newly awarded contract.
Borden was originally based in Goshen before being acquired by Elkhart-based Waste-Away Group in 1974. Borden Waste-Away President, Chris Himes, relates, “We’re happy to be a part of the City of Goshen again where Borden initially had its roots. We’re looking forward to strengthening our current connection and relationship with its residents.”
The City of Goshen currently has collection service at the curb, with some customers’ trash being serviced in the alley. The way the trash is serviced will not change. Residents are asked to have trash out by 6:30 a.m. on their service day.
Borden will be offering 96-gallon trash carts free of charge for residents who call to request a cart before April 30, 2018. If more than one cart is needed, Borden may be able to accommodate those requests.

Borden is offering a discounted rate of $5.00 per month for residents who sign up for recycling by April 30, 2018.
