Regular bag limits will be observed on delayed dates.

Customers are asked to take the following steps to prepare their trash for collection during winter weather:

  • Place all trash in securely tied, heavy-mil bags of 32 gallons and 40 pounds maximum, or place bags in trash cans with tight fitting lids of the same maximum capacity.
  • Use dark-colored bags that will be visible in the snow
  • Keep an uncovered and cleared path to trash cans/bags.
  • In the case of heavy snow accumulation, place items on top of or in front of snow piles directly along the collection route
  • Using tied trash bags in place of cans is best during wind to keep cans from blowing away
  • Do not leave unscheduled large items (that do not fit the normal weight/size limit) or trash that exceeds bag limits for pickup. They will not be collected.
  • Place all items at the pickup point by 6 a.m. the day of collection. Crews will not return for late items.
