Recycling is a good

thing

Recycling is here to stay.  So is throwing away the trash.  Did you know that per county ordinances you cannot keep more than a weeks worth of trash on your property and it must be contained in a specific type of container?  You can read more at the HCSW  website.  Once there click on the solid waste department and navigate through the riveting reading there.  It has more information about trash than you ever wanted to know.

Carefully read through the website.  It is what we follow.

Could be any day!  Inclement weather procedures. (If it’s summer

you don’t have to read further unless we have a freak storm.  It

could happen) just sayin!

We can’t run on icy and snow packed roads even if you can. 1. Our trash trucks don’t do well on ice. 2. Your bones don’t do well on ice. 3. We will pick up everything you put out next week, please     err on the side of good judgment and sense. 4. Trash is just as important to us as it is for you but not             worth rehab, or worse. 5. We do not take trash at the office.  Recycling only.  Can not         say yes to one and not to all.  Just think how that would look. 6. If this is getting updated periodically during the day we are     not at the office either.  Enjoy winter.  Can’t wait for summer!

The limit on trash has not changed 99 gal per week.  The overage from nearly all customers has caused us to have to go to the dump multiple times, thus slowing down the route, and taking more time to get to everyone.  Please if you have a special pick up let the office know and prepare to pay accordingly.  After all we are getting charged to throw away your trash at the landfill.  Thank you for your understanding.  Out by 7:00 am does not mean you will be picked up at 7:00 am.  It simply means that the trash will be there when we get there. We cannot and will not give specific times because there are too many variables.  Trash has been over limits often and heavy often.  So you can expect delays often.  But we will get your trash on your pick up day.  If it is not by the next morning, please call the office. 
The calendar that we use to set up our holiday schedule can be found here.  If the holiday falls on Friday or the weekend is DOES NOT affect the weekly pickup schedule.  If the holiday affects office closure it will also be noted on this calendar.
