Currently trash & recycle services will continue as normal.
Please refrain from generating additional heavy trash, such as cleaning garages, closets, extra yard work, etc. Due to extra volumes, trash is extremely heavy and our routes are running later than normal. Please be patient as we are doing our best to get all trash collected.
In response to the continuing effects of the Coronavirus and in observance of our employee’s safety, we are asking that all waste be placed in plastic bags and tied off to avoid any need for direct contact with the garbage.
Please continue to place your recycling loose in your container. Please break down all boxes and reduce in size as much as possible. If you exceed the capacity of the container, please bag and place with trash. However, if anyone in your household is exhibiting symptoms of any transmissible illness, please place recyclables in plastic bags and dispose of with your regular garbage.
As you are keenly aware, the situation caused by COVID-19 is changing almost daily. Due to the search for toilet paper and “flushable” alternatives flooding the market, people are beginning to flush items down the drain that are not meant to be disposed of in that fashion. The result of flushing other products could mean major wastewater treatment issues for your individual home and the District.
Toilet paper alternatives such as “flushable wipes”, wet wipes, sanitary napkins, and/or paper towels cannot be flushed down the toilet safely. These products often create major blockages in your home’s sewer lines and in the District’s wastewater treatment line; additionally, if such items make it to the sewage treatment plant, the facilities can become overworked trying to process that solid waste. Please take the time to dispose of these products properly in a waste receptacle in your home.
Flushing these types of products create not only inconveniences in District services, but also incur very costly repairs.
Please do NOT flush wet wipes, tissues or heavy paper towels!!
If you have any further questions or concerns regarding the information above, please feel free to contact the district via the District’s “Contact Us” page.
