TRASH, BRUSH SERVICE

The regular schedule for household trash collection resumed Monday. During this emergency, residents should use the gray carts, the green and yellow recycling carts, and plastic bags for household garbage. Keep all carts five feet away from the nearest object.

Brush pick up services continues. This pick up is for limbs and brush only. At a later time, other storm debris will be collected. Residents are reminded not to stack limbs and brush on top of the water meters and near gas meters. Do not park vehicles in front of the debris.

Yard waste in the paper bags will not be picked up by the contracted brush service. The bags that are already stacked will be picked up but residents are asked to stop putting the paper yard waste bags next to their limb stacks. The City will collect the yard waste in bags at a later time.

Both City and County residents can take tree debris to the limb drop-off center at Aloe Field (21900 Zac Lentz Pkwy., just west of Bob White Road and Highway 77 (Loop 463). This drop-off site is FREE and open 7 days a week from 8 am-6 pm.

MOSQUITO SPRAYING CONTINUES
