Collection Schedules

January 17, 2020 - Today's collection on track

  • Crew's are out picking up for today's scheduled collection although delays are expected.
  • Wednesday's cancellation - if your regular scheduled collection was missed on Wednesday due to the weather cancellation, have your carts out 7am - 3pm (Mon-Fri).  Crews hope to have completed pick up of the missed route by Wed., Jan 22.
    • Due to icing conditions, crews won't be going out this weekend to collect misses and will resume operations come Monday.
  • Frozen cart contents - Due to the freezing temperatures, some of your cart contents may not be fully emptied.  We'll get the remaining contents on your next scheduled collection day.

January 16, 2020 - Today's collection as scheduled

Collection trucks are back on the road today although delays are expected.  Separate crews are working to pick up yesterday's missed collection day.  Please leave your carts at the curb, in a place that doesn't impede snow clearing, until they are emptied.  Depending on weather conditions we're hopeful crews can work into Saturday if needed.

Collection trucks have been grounded for the day due to the amount of snowfall and condition of residential streets.  Leave your carts at the curb until they are emptied. Thank you for your patience.

Inclement weather protocol

Collection remains as scheduled, please bring your carts to the curb.  Crews will make every effort to collect same day although maybe running late.  If you're signed up for reminders, you'll receive up to date information.  Thank you for your patience as we get through the next couple of snowy days.
