Trash & Recycling Guidelines During the COVID-19 Crisis

You can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by following these guidelines during this crisis:

  • Try to limit the amount of trash and yard waste each week, in order to not overwhelm the collection system. Yes, we know everyone is at home and creating lots of trash, but please try to be mindful of the waste you create.
  • Bag all trash inside the Toter. Don't place loose trash in the Toter.
  • Do not put additional trash next to the Toters. If trash does not fit in the Toter, hold it back for the next collection.

  • Rinse and drain bottles and cans before placing them loose in the Recycling Toters.

  • Disinfect Toter handles and lids before and after each collection.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
