In response to the continuing effects of the Coronavirus and in observance of our employee’s safety, we are asking that all waste be placed in plastic bags and tied off to avoid any direct contact with the garbage.
Trash collection services will continue as normal, but we are experiencing an increase in the amount of residential solid waste as a result of residents spending more time at home. Please be patient as we are doing our best to get everyone collected.
Green waste collection will continue; however we anticipate delays in service. By taking the following steps, residents can help minimize these delays:
- Mulch leaves and grass clippings instead of bagging them for disposal.
- Limit the amount of pruning and tree trimming to only what is essential.
- If utilizing a landscaping company, ensure all green waste is collected and hauled off by the contractor.
Please continue to place your recycling loose in your container. However, if anyone in your household is exhibiting symptoms of any transmissible illness, please place recyclables in plastic bags and dispose of with your regular garbage.
