City moves to weekly residential garbage collection starting Monday, May 18

For immediate release: May 5, 2020 - 11:00am
UE20-1202

After a short delay to address health and safety measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and to expand their workforce, the City will be switching to weekly residential garbage (black cart) collection starting Monday, May 18. Residents will see no change in their collection day, only the date that weekly collection begins. Online Collection Calendars have been updated to reflect this change, so residents are reminded to check their schedules to ensure they don’t miss their collection day.

As the City continues to make every effort to ensure the health and safety of its workforce and the community, residents are reminded to practice safe and sanitary waste disposal and ensure proper cart placement to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Weekly collections will remain in effect until the end of September.
