Weather Conditions, Positive COVID-19 Cases Contribute to Trash, Recycling Collections Delays Additional Solid Waste Services Impacted
Monday Jan 3rd, 2022
The Department of Public Works (DPW) thanks residents for their patience as we continue to work through operational challenges presented by the rise in positive COVID-19 cases and today’s winter weather impacts. DPW may have some challenges servicing trash or recycling pick-ups scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, January 4. The City’s alleyways are expected to remain quite slick, and any melting precipitation will refreeze overnight. These conditions make the collection of trash and recycling difficult for sanitation workers. DPW reminds residents that only City streets are plowed and that alleyways and sidewalks are the responsibility of the resident or the business owner. Please check your alleys and sidewalks when you shovel to avoid further disruption to trash and recycling collections.
In addition, the following Solid Waste services will remain suspended on Tuesday, January 4, 2022.
- Bulk Collections
- Street Sweeping
- Street & Alley Cleaning
- Cleaning & Boarding
- Fire Debris/Special Investigation Unit (SIU)
- Graffiti Removal
- Waterway Cleaning
- Rat Rubout Program
DPW will provide additional updates as they become available. Residents are encouraged to check the DPW website for additional updates.
