Snow and Ice, Oh My!

If extreme winter weather arrives to our area your garbage and recycling service may be delayed. Leave your carts at the curb and your garbage and recycling company will collect them as soon as they are able. 

Contact your garbage hauler directly to learn about any weather related service interruptions.
