Due to the winter storms on Monday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 12, 2019, the following alerts are from Waste Management:

  • The East-side Alleys were not able to be picked up on Monday, Feb. 11. Collection for these alleys will take place on the next scheduled collection day (Monday, February 18), and Waste Management will accept double the collection for the east-side alleys due to missing Feb. 11.
