TRASH PICK-UP DURING COVID-19
County Hauling will continue municipal & recycling collections as is, for now, but will be working closely with county officials. The following steps will be taken: 1) Only properly bagged trash will be collected. To protect the health and safety of our employees, we have reminded them that loose trash, while never acceptable, can be especially dangerous during a contagious outbreak. Please note that loose trash on roadways or lawns will be the responsibility of residents. LOOSE TRASH IN TRASH CANS OR OUTSIDE OF TRASH CANS NOT PLACED IN BAGS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED. 2) We will need to suspend bulk pick-ups. Given the larger amount of people home there is a significant increase in the amount of trash being produced. Our primary focus is on eliminating recurring trash within your community. 3) We will be suspending yard waste pick-ups until further notice. 4) The CDC has announced that the virus can stay on cardboard for up to 24 hours and plastic for up to 3 days. At this time, we are discontinuing cardboard collection and should be placed in with the MSW trash IN BAG.
