Reminder - Garbage, Recycling and Yard Waste Bags PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 09 September 2014 08:41

Just a reminder that you may set out garbage, recycling and/or yard waste bags 48 hours prior to pick-up.  We have had many instances of bags of garbage and yard waste out for an extended period of time only to have weather and/or animals destroy the bags, making it difficult for those running the route as well as spilling garbage and yard waste through neighborhoods.

Thank you!
