Refridgerators and Freezers

Damaged refridgerators and freezers must be emptied.  Residents are asked to remove the food before bringing these items to the curb.  The food waste can be placed inside bags and disposed of in the same pile as your other damaged or destroyed materials.

 

Bag Color

Under normal circumstances, bag color matters. However, under this special situation the bag colors used to dispose of your materials will be overlooked during this special collection. 

Residents should be reminded that their regular household garbage, blue bags and green cart material must meet regular curbside requirements.

 

Electronics

Under normal circumstances, many electronics are required to be recycled. However, under this special situation all electronics that were damaged because of flood water exposure can be placed curbside during this special collection.
