COLLECTION SUSPENSION EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 8 for YARD MATERIAL Posted on: 2018-10-02
The suspension for excess yard material goes into effect on Monday, October 8th.
Yard and garden debris will be collected during Fall Cleanup which begins on November 5.
During the suspension period, drivers will collect compost carts and excess material (up to 2 containers, bags, etc.) of household material only. The suspension applies to yard and garden material only.
At this time of the year, there is a higher volume of material such as leaves, twigs, garden debris. The collection suspension allows drivers to collect these compostables on a dedicated truck. It is handled differently and stored separately from household organics at the Compost Facility so that it can be used year round in the production of compost.
