Recycling, Yard Waste and Trash Can Reminder

Don't forget to put all trash cans, yard waste containers and recycling cans away after the pick up has been done.


Please make sure the containers cannot be seen from the street when they are stored.

 

Two Important Reminders Regarding Waste Pick-up

 

ALL glass, including broken glass, should be placed in with recycling for pick-up on Thursdays. If you do place broken glass in your household garbage, please make sure to wrap all sharp edges to prevent punctures to trash bags and possible injury to the workers.

 

Sharps (razor blades, syringes, etc.) MUST be placed in a container prior to being placed in with household garbage to prevent punctures to trash bags and possible injury to the workers.
