These common winter weather factors may disrupt your regular service:
- Plowed snow blocking access to your trash or recycling container.
- The snow or ice around your container is too deep, preventing our truck’s ability to access your container.
- Steep hills or winding roads that have become icy, making it difficult for our drivers to navigate.
- Poor visibility.
- Non-plowed areas preventing our drivers from turning around.
- Your trash or recycling container has been covered or buried in snow and is not visible to our driver.
- Your trash or recycling container has been placed on or behind a snow mound and is inaccessible to our driver.
These tips will help ensure that your trash/recycling services run effectively during cold weather months:
- Keep the area in front and around your container salted and clear of snow and ice.
- Ensure all gates can be easily opened if your container is enclosed.
