Please do not put other waste in the bins. Due to the risk of contamination, materials brought to these bins will be sent to landfills.

Regular curbside collection continues this week as scheduled. If your green bin is full, you can place your organics in cardboard boxes or leaf and yard waste bags.

If your garbage, organics and recyclables are not collected by the regular time, please leave them out. We will complete pickups as soon as possible, however there may be delays due to high demand following the storm and power outages.

Volunteers picking up roadside debris can leave it on the side of the road and City crews will pick it up.

Please do not move storm-related debris from your property to the curb. Contact your insurance company to arrange for proper disposal. The City is in the process of removing storm debris from roadsides and ditches on a priority basis.
