Trash, recycling resume normal services April 27
Residential recycling service and twice-weekly trash pickup will resume effective Monday, April 27. The services had been operating on a modified schedule since April 9 due to staffing shortages created by COVID-19. Full staffing levels have returned, enabling normal collections to resume.
While recycling services were suspended, residents were still able to drop off their recyclables at two locations. The recycle bin at the Westside Pump Station, 101 N. Cottonwood Dr., will remain in place and continue to be open daily from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. The recycle drop off bins that have been in place at the Service Center will no longer be in service as of Monday.
Even with the resumption of normal collection service, please continue to abide by the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep sanitation workers safe. If someone in your household is sick, the CDC recommends double bagging your trash before setting it on the curb for collection. When handling potentially contaminated items such as gloves and facemasks, remember to wear disposable gloves and wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after handling trash bags.
