For those of you concerned about the cleanliness and/or spread of the coronavirus,  residents can use a clorox solution or any other disinfectant on the cans or bins.

This will be at the discretion and responsibilty of the homeowner if you choose to clean your can.

There is no possible way we can clean the cans after each pick up but understand this may be a concern for some homeowners.

We recommend washing hands before and after contact with the trash can/recycle bins or wearing gloves as the CDC has advised.

Understand we are not asking individuals to clean the cans but are letting everyone know you may do so if you have concerns about these items being cleaned.

Our guys are provided with gloves along with hand sanitizer and would not be working if they are sick with this or any other virus or flu.

We ask that during this time all trash to be put in bags and all bags placed in the can for removal.


11. Can liquids be placed in the trash or recycle?
Effective 7-25-22 flyers were placed out to everyone stating that no liquids are allowed in the trash or recycle.

Please empty all liquids for bottles, cans or any other containers. It will eliminate spillage from these items and will be better on the landfill, recycle center and your neighborhood streets. When the truck pack back to make more room for additional items the liquids fill up the back of the truck and can spill out on the roadway and at the collection centers.

Thank you in advance for cooperation!
