Collections Slide this Week

Due to inclement weather, collections were cancelled on Wednesday, February 20. All curbside collections of recycling and trash, including bulk item collection and scrap metal collection, will slide and be made one day later this week. Please be patient as crews work safely to collect material. Residents are reminded that recycling and trash containers must be free of snow and ice. Collection crews will not dig out containers. 


Mark DeLuca, Bureau of Environmental Services Chief
