Who To Know

*Special Notice on garbage collection for Wednesday, January 17*

Due to winter weather, we are currently in a holding pattern and will start our routes when we determine we can safely operate. Please place your roll cart out for collection on your normal scheduled day and simply leave it until we service it. It may be much later in the day, or even the following day depending on the road conditions. This will allow us to catch up to normal schedule faster. Thanks for your patience and understanding
