More Large Item Set-outs Days Available and Other Highlights for the Week of December 13

December 13, 2021 9:23 AM

More Large Item Set-outs Days Now Available in Work Order System

The Streets Division is happy to announce that you will now have more opportunities every month to set out large items for collection when you submit a large item work order.

The Streets Division expects you will see weekly large item set-out opportunities throughout the year when you submit a work order for large item collection.

Under the previous version of the work order system, you were restricted to just one large item set-out opportunity a month.

Now, thanks to the data provided by the work order system and the collection efficiency it provides, the Streets Division was able to greatly increase the number of set-out opportunities. [More details]
