Dear Resident,

Beginning the week of October 3, 2016, the neighborhoods listed below will have a new collection day for household trash.  Your new collection day for household trash will be every Tuesday.  Tuesday, October 4th will be your first collection day under the new schedule.  This change is only for the neighborhoods listed below and is for household trash only, your recycling pick-up day has not changed.  Your household trash should continue to be placed in the trash container provided by Waste Management and placed at the curb no later than 7am on the day of collection.

This change is occurring due to
growth in the number of homes we have seen in the City over the last several years.
