New Heavy Trash and Tree Waste Pick Up Days

By | September 12, 2012

From Council Member Jack Christie’s newsletter:

The Solid Waste Management Department has taken resident feedback and is improving heavy trash and tree waste service throughout the city. Effective November 1, 2012, community areas will have a new heavy trash/tree waste service date. The change in service date will provide a single service day for major community areas. No change will be made on the alternating months for heavy waste and tree waste; just the service day will change.

Residents will receive multiple direct mail pieces from the Solid Waste Management Department of the upcoming and needed improvement in service, as well as the new service day.
