Holiday Trash Schedule – Dec 2019

Christmas Day & New Year’s Day: Falls on a Wednesday this year. Office is closed and no services will be provided. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday collection will be as normal. All Wednesday service collection will be performed on Saturday 12/28/2019 (makeup for Christmas Day) and Saturday 1/4/2020 (makeup for New Year’s Day).

On make-up days, crews come through neighborhoods earlier than normal, please make sure items are at curbside the night before

Trash/Recycle Friday pick guidelines

Hi Folks,

Hope everyone is staying dry will all the precipitation.

With regards to the Trash/Recycle picks up on Friday. One of the recommendations is to clearly separate the Recycle & Trash placement. I believe most people are kinda doing this already. Perhaps just formalize, using the rule of thumb of Recycle to the Right of the collection area (or mailbox post if one is there) and Trash to the Left of the left of the collection area. This doesn’t have to hard and fast…just so it is clear what is what.

If you ever watched the garbage men…they move thru really fast. This will really help the pick up guys nothing have to figure where something is recycle or trash

We will soon put some some laminated flyers on all the mailboxes with this guidance as well.

thank you
