Trash Collection Update

Saturday, January 20, 2018

An error in the Resident's Handbook listed Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a Waste Management holiday. This is incorrect - trash day is not impacted by Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Due to the fact that some resident's trash/recycle was not out this morning, Waste Management will send trucks back tomorrow morning to pick up any trash/recycle that is out. Please make sure trash/recycle is set out to the curb by 7 am. We apologize for the error and will send out a correction to that page of the Resident's Handbook with a future City Newsletter.
