IMPORTANT Winter Collection Information

 

During the winter months, high winds and blustery weather conditions will make it difficult to secure collection materials safely and properly curbside. If a weather forecast is predicting unfavorable conditions and it is your collection day, residents are reminded they can hold on to their materials until their next scheduled collection day.

The collectors will collect:

Extra garbage bags and green cart material on your area’s next regularly scheduled garbage and green cart collection day.


• Blue bags will be collected on your area’s NEXT regularly scheduled blue bag collection week.
