Residential curb side refuse and recycling collection will resume on Tuesday, January 7 and collections will be delayed by one day for the remainder of the week.
After careful consideration of weather conditions we feel we can safely collect trash and recycling materials curb side on Tuesday. Our supervisors are making sure employee's understand how to protect themselves from the early morning cold temperatures with layering of clothing and using the truck cab to take warming breaks during the route. Temperatures are forecast to quickly moderate tomorrow with highs near 30 degree's.
Please help us collect your trash and recycling by ensuring materials are not obstructed by snow and placed in accessible areas. It is also very helpful, especially this time of year, to make sure large boxes are broken down properly and placed in a disposable container if possible.
Thank you for your help.
