Garbage, Recycling And Yard/Food Waste Pickups Resume Today, January 3, 2022

Residential Solid Waste Collections are as normal for Monday, January 3. Customers skipped last week may set out double their normal amount of garbage, recycling, and compost on their collection day for no additional charge.  This includes recycling collection, even if it’s not a customer’s typical week for collection. Contractors will attempt to collect this ‘off-week’ recycling, if possible, but may not be able to collect all. If a customer’s recycling isn’t collected this week, they can set out double on their next regular recycling collection day. 

Transfer stations and the Household Hazardous Waste Facility are open with normal hours. 

For tips on setting out extra waste, visit: https://bit.ly/spuextra. Customers should be sure to have their containers out by 7 a.m. to ensure collection.
