Curbside Solid Waste Collection
- Limited curbside solid waste collection resumed on Thursday, Sept. 2.
- The City's solid waste contractors will only be dumping the city-issued 95-gallon trash cart during these initial passes.
- Residents should continue to bag their rotting waste, place in the City-issued trash cart and leave their carts on the curb until they are emptied; it will take some time for sanitation contractors to complete the full, citywide collection cycle.
- Recycling collections have been suspended until further notice.
