Garbage collection during inclement weather
With the winter season comes the possibility of snow and ice on the roadways. Our sanitation department works hard in all types of weather to ensure that you get the best service possible. The one thing we prioritize even more highly than providing this service is keeping the community safe. There are times when it just isn’t prudent to be out in the snow with a large, heavy truck.
During a snow event, if your garbage is not picked up on its regular day, please leave it out at the curb. We will be by when conditions allow. We understand the former “just put out double next week” doesn’t work that well for most people. We will get caught up as soon as it is safe to do so, even if this requires working late. Thank you for your understanding. Please check back here or on social media for specific service updates.
