Public Services Roads and Sanitation Superintendent Todd Noles said, “Friday, (today) January 19, 2024, trash pickup will begin at 10:00 a.m. The crews will do the Wednesday and Thursday routes today. This is because Monday and Tuesday routes are located in a hillier area, which is still a little more treacherous.”

The decision to pick up trash today was not made until after the weather and road conditions could be evaluated this morning, which is why the notice is so late. But don’t worry, if you miss today’s pickup, your trash will be picked up next week. Public Services appreciates your patience while they navigate through this situation.

Overflows will be permitted next week ONLY – meaning you can put out extra bagged trash (must be bagged) if it doesn’t fit in the can. Please put as much in the container as you can.

“Tomorrow, Saturday, January 20, crews will pick up Monday and Tuesday trash routes, starting at 9:00 a.m. The transfer station (dump) is not normally open on Saturdays but is opening because of the delays caused by inclement weather.”

“We are just picking up what we can get to safely. We are not putting our trucks or guys in danger. If we don’t pick your trash up, it is because we can’t get to it, and we will get to it next week.”

“Next week, there is about an 80% chance of freezing precipitation on Monday morning. We are not picking up trash on Monday. We will be on a “holiday” schedule and will run a day behind. Monday’s trash will be picked up on Tuesday, and so forth.”

“When there is freezing precipitation, the transfer station closes. We are at the mercy of the transfer station,” said Noles.

Next Week’s Sanitation Schedule:

  • Monday on Tuesday
  • Tuesday on Wednesday
  • Wednesday on Thursday
  • Thursday on Friday
  • No special pickup on Friday

Noles said, “Normal sanitation service will resume the following week [Monday, January 29] if the weather permits.”

“Crews are still working to sand and plow in residential areas,” stated Noles. “Because of the refreeze, we came in at 5:00 a.m. yesterday and this morning to treat some of the hills before the morning work traffic hit on the major roads. We are trying to be proactive.”

“Crews will start at 4:00 or 5:00 am. on Monday.

Associate Director of Public Services Matt Broom said, “The situation is much better this morning. There have been no accidents so far. We request drivers to take it easy and maintain safe stopping distances.”
