With the recent storms, it has been noticed that many of the trash containers (both dumpsters and polycarts) are surrounded by ice and snow. This makes it difficult – and dangerous – for the Refuse Crew to re-position (push, pull, and/or shove) the containers close enough to the trash truck so they can be emptied.
If a trash container cannot easily be moved, the Refuse Crew will be unable to empty that container. They will not return to empty the container until your next scheduled pick-up day.
Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated. For questions, please contact the Public Works Department at the City Service Center at 970.565.7320.
