Curbside Recycling, Compostables and Garbage Collection

COVID-19 Curbside Update

Please bag all garbage. Do not place un-bagged waste loose in your garbage containers.

Additionally, these items are temporarily NOT accepted in your Green Cart with curbside compostable waste:

• Paper towels
• Paper napkins
• Facial tissues

Please bag all waste, including these items, tie securely and place in the garbage.

If you or someone in your household is sick, all personal waste (tissues, gloves, masks, etc.) should be double bagged in securely tied plastic garbage bags for curbside collection.

These measures will help stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect our curbside crews so they stay healthy and can continue to provide waste collection.

Reminder: Don’t flush unflushables! Disinfectant wipes, baby wipes and paper towels should be bagged, securely tied, and disposed of with regular garbage.
