Curbside Collection: Inclement Weather Reminder
Is your curbside collection day scheduled to happen during unfavorable weather or road conditions? If so, you can choose to hold onto your materials until your area’s next regularly scheduled collection day.
- EXTRA garbage bags and green cart material will be collected on your area’s next regularly scheduled collection day.
- Blue bags will be collected on your area's next regularly scheduled blue bag collection week.
If you decide to place your materials curbside during inclement weather, it is your responsibility to make sure the material remains secure during heavy winds, if the materials become buried during snow fall, during plowing of your road or street, or placed in an area that may affect vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
At the end of the collection day, if your material is not collected, please remove from the curb. It is your responsibility to remove any uncollected materials at the end the day.
