  • Your trash or recycling may be picked up earlier or later than the usual time (please set at the curb before 6 a.m.)
  • Extra trucks may be working in your neighborhood
  • Trucks may run late into the evening beyond normal work hours

However, these facilities will be open during normal business hours the remainder of the week for residents wishing to dispose of excess trash, recycling or yard waste.
