Local Recycling News
To help celebrate Earth Day, the Recycling Committee asks that your family considers having a Neighborhood Property Cleanup day. It would be a good way to keep busy in the fresh air and doing good for the Earth at the same time. Please wear appropriate clothing and use gloves if needed. Remember to social distance with your neighbors.
Bulky Waste pickup just happens to be the week of April 20 – 24, on your regular trash day, or sometime after. You can reference your purple Recycling Information card about what is not accepted as bulky waste.
Electronics, like TVs, are not considered bulky waste. The next electronics drop off will be July 11th at Public Works.
Our refuse company asks that tree limbs be tied into bundles of no longer than 4 feet long.The leaf drop off is open on the next 2 Saturdays, April 18th and April 25th from 9-3.� Just allow for social distancing. There will be a curbside leaf pickup during the week of April 27 – May 1 on your regular trash day.
