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.
• Extra garbage bags and green cart material will be collected 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.
