ALERT : Feb 26, 2015 - TRASH AND RECYCLING COLLECTIONS
Rear driveway collections have resumed this week. A small number of driveways however remain ice covered and are dangerous. We are monitoring these locations daily and will dispatch collection trucks as soon as the driveways are safe to travel.
Recycling collections are on schedule this week but trash collection is a day behind in parts of the City. Please continue to place your materials out on your scheduled day at the usual location. Any missed trash collections will be picked up the following day.
Thank for your patience. We apologize for any inconvenience.
1) DO NOT throw snow in the streets. This is illegal and hampers crews’ snow/ice removal efforts.
2) Clear a path of at least 3 feet within six hours of the end of a storm. For corner properties, this includes access ramps for wheelchair users.
3) Help clear sewer inlets by reporting to 311.
4) Motorists, please clear snow/ice from vehicles’ hoods and roofs.
The Streets Department has compiled a report with an assessment of the current conditions of the City’s historic streets. The intent of this report is to provide the City with objective results that can be used to prioritize historic streets repair investments. >
