Winterizing your home
If you are leaving for an extended period of time this winter, it is important that your home is protected from freezing pipes. Fall is a good time to double-check your pipes before winter sets in. Here are some tips on winterizing your home:
- Insulate outdoor pipes and faucets.
- Drain and disconnect outdoor hoses.
- Leave furnace on a low setting (55 degrees) as lack of heat can freeze pipes in the wall and basement.
- Insulate pipes and faucets in unheated areas including attics, garages and crawl spaces.
- Ensure vents under your home are closed.
- Locate your main shut-off valve. Knowing where your shut-off valve is located can save time and prevent damage from flooding if a pipe does break.
- Inspect your water system during and immediately following cold weather to ensure your pipes are still in good condition.
Yard waste collection in the winter
Weekly yard waste collection stops after the week of Nov. 20 and reverts back to monthly collection for the winter. Winter collection is always the third week of the month:
- week of Dec. 18
- week of Jan. 15
- week of Feb. 19, and
- week of March 19.
Starting March 26, 2018, yard waste collection will revert back to weekly service.
