In effort to keep our staff cool when the heat index reaches 105+ degrees, our routes will be completed a little earlier than normal. To ensure your cart is serviced as scheduled, please set your cart out the night prior to your service.
If you are visiting our transfer stations, we ask for your patience as we may be running a little slower than usual to ensure our staff is getting enough breaks and fluids. Stay safe out there!
Do you participate in our Curbside Yard Debris Program? We need your help in keeping one of the biggest contaminants we are seeing recently, out of the yard debris carts. Plastic bags are not compostable so all yard debris such as; brush, leaves, grass clippings, plant prunings, weeds, and woody materials up to 2 inches in diameter should be placed loosely in the cart. Take a moment to download and review our Curbside Yard Debris brochure and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our office! We are happy to help!
**All routes will be running as normal**
Our offices, transfer stations and recycle depots will be closed on Monday, September 4th for Labor Day.
We will reopen on Tuesday at our normal scheduled times. We wish you a fun and safe holiday!
