Trash Collection During Snow Storms

Trash collection during and after snowfalls can present a significant challenge and we need your help. The men and women of the Solid Waste department have a difficult job which is made more difficult by winter weather conditions. . Their goal is to provide you with excellent customer service.

Here are a few tips which will help us collect your trash and recycling more efficiently during winter weather:

  • Place your collection materials as close the street as possible
  • Make sure your collection materials are off of patches of ice
  • Make sure your collection materials are not hidden behind snow banks
  • If the forecast is for snow the night before your collection date – please consider
    not setting your trash out the night before so it does not get covered and hidden in the snow
