The Streets Division will be starting collection of trash and recycling early on Wednesday, February 22, 2023 due to the winter storm.

Residents who have a Wednesday trash and recycling day are encouraged to place their carts out for collection on their terrace or driveway apron tonight (Tuesday, February 21) , or by 6:00am Wednesday, February 22 at the very latest.

If you place your cart out late, you are likely to miss your collection opportunity. Due to the weather, crews may not be able to circle back for late stops.

Streets Division crews will be starting early in an effort to collect the trash and recycling before tomorrow’s snowstorm turns to sleet and ice.
