Normal schedule


Bulk collection will resume on Tuesday. In addition, trash and recycling will be collected on a normal schedule. For more information, call the Waste Management Division at 393-8663.


Starting Tuesday, October 6th, residents whose collection was missed should set out waste for pickup. Tuesday routes will be completed, after which Waste Management will pick up as much of Friday’s suspended service as possible. It will continue to pick up missed trash through the week until all of Friday Week 1 trash is serviced. Residents disposing tree limbs and yard waste should put debris at curb for pickup on the same day as their trash collection. Bulk waste items scheduled for last week should stay at curb for pickup.

Trash and recycling collection will continue on schedule, unless individual roads cause problems.
