TRASH AND RECYCLE: | Update: Thursday, Jan. 11th 11:30 AM
In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, January 15, Trash and Recycling (green week) will be delayed by one day.
Due to last week’s one day trash delay for New Year’s and then the storm, Waste Management has rescheduled the pick-up for Christmas Trees and Leaf and Yard Waste to next week - January 16 through January 20.
For this week and next week only (January 10- January 20) if you have extra recyclables you may put out your own barrel filled with recyclables next to your recycling cart. Put a sign on top “Recycling”. You may also fill a paper leaf bag ¾ full with recyclables, staple or tape the opening, write “Recycling” on bag with a marker and put it on top of your recycling cart like you would do with an overflow bag. Again, DPW and Waste Management are working to catch up on pickups. LEAVE YOUR CARTS AT THE CURB until picked up.
There are still many missed trash and recycling carts around the City waiting for pickup from last week and this week, and Waste Management did not get to all the carts on today’s routes. PLEASE KEEP YOUR CARTS AT THE CURB. Shovel out a space at the curb so the trucks can get to them. The aftermath of the blizzard and the frigid weather is slowing the trucks progress down narrowed streets, with cars parked at corners that impede trucks in turning onto smaller streets.
Waste Management will continue working to get to all the pickups and will work through this Saturday. Thank you for your patience as DPW and Waste Management work to get caught up. We will continue to update you on the progress.
