IMPORTANT NOTICES/MESSAGES
Garbage Pickup:
If your alley looks like it is unpassable for a garbage truck,
you may want to try to get your garbage tote to the
street area for pickup.
The snow & ice has made it hard for the trucks to get
through some alleys & so garbage totes have been missed
during the Thursday morning pickup.
If you usually put your tote in the alley & it was missed
you are asked to try getting set out on the street.
After pickup please move the tote back as soon as
possible in case the snow plows need to clear.
KEEP THINGS CLEAR FOR PLOWS
With the return of winter snows, people are reminded
to please keep areas clear for the snow plows to get through.
