Possible severe weather delays for curbside collection service

During exceptionally cold or icy conditions, driving may be hazardous and the collection of garbage, recycling and composting may be delayed or postponed. In the case of a weather delay, garbage and composting collection will be prioritized for collection as soon as it is safe for regular collections to resume. Evening and Saturday collections may be necessary. If your collection was missed due to severe weather, please leave your garbage and/or composting roll carts at the curb to accommodate collection. Recycling roll carts will be collected on the next regularly scheduled collection day. 

Contact your garbage and recycling company to find out about possible collection delays.
