The City’s solid waste contractor, Waste Connections, has sent word that because of the uncertainties related to the lifespan of the COVID-19 virus on surfaces, all bulk and compost collection will be temporarily halted. This means that starting on Monday, March 23, Waste Connection trucks will only collect material that is contained in trash and recycling poly carts. Bulk, compost, and extra items not contained in the poly carts will not be collected. This policy will remain in place until further notice. Residents are asked to refrain from placing any such items curbside.
