Recycling Delays: Many residents have expressed concerns recently about the quality and timeliness of collection service from TFC Recycling. We're aware of the delays and are told by TFC that it's due to ongoing staffing and equipment shortages. We are continuing to report missed collections to TFC Recycling, as we work to ensure that our residents receive the best possible service through the end of TFC's contract. Please continue to place your blue bin at the curb on your scheduled collection date, and leave it there until it is emptied.

Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing: It can be unnerving to see smoke come out of your drains but it could mean the Public Utilities Department is working in your area. Smoke testing is done to find leaks and damage in the City's side of the sewer system. If smoke gets into your home, that means there's damage on your end as well and it's time to call a plumber. Learn more about the process and view the smoke testing schedule.
