Waste Collection Delays: Providing timely collection of waste - household, bulk, and bagged yard waste - is a core mission for the City. Recently, we've faced some challenges in this area, due in large part to staffing shortages. The City is working to recruit additional staff and get them into the field as quickly as possible. However, during this time residents can expect delays for all types of waste collection. Please continue to place your brown trash cans and bagged yard waste (clear bags only) at the curb on your scheduled day, and continue to call or go online to schedule bulk waste collections. We appreciate your patience as we work to overcome the issues. If you know of anyone seeking a rewarding career, in a field that directly impacts their neighbors, please encourage them to visit the City's job site to apply.
