WEATHER-EMERGENCY SERVICE DISRUPTION NEWS

All Curbside Recycling Customers

We run the curbside routes in all but the most extreme weather, however, to prevent accidents and/or frostbite, sometimes we have to take the trucks off the roads mid-day or cancel a day’s routes entirely. Some neighborhoods, in particular, may be missed more frequently due to slippery hills and local snowplowing issues. These disruptions are frustrating all around; please rest assured that we are committed to minimizing them!

If your recyclables are not picked up during extreme weather, please:

  • hold on to them and set them back out on your usual collection day the next week, or
  • take some or all of the materials to one of the Recycling Drop-off Sites when the weather has improved.

Thank you for recycling with us!
