The totters are provided free of charge by the Town of Abington and remain the property of the Town of Abington.  These totters have a computer chip which are scanned assigning the totters to each eligible residential unit as set forth above. These specially designed totters have large wheels and an attached lid for easy placement at curbside.  The lid is attached to the handle of the totter and must be placed in the closed position at curbside.
