Trash collection to resume Monday

Trash Collection Resumes Monday

Regular collection of household trash will resume on Monday. Solid Waste crews have been hard at work since Saturday to clear streets of debris, brush, low hanging limbs, power lines and cables, to provide for access for the trash trucks.

The regular scheduled residential pickup is for household trash only. No brush, construction debris, yard waste or recycling will be picked up.

Residents who have more household trash than will fit in their container may use their yellow and green recycling cart for excess trash. Additionally, residents may use plastic bags and other garbage cans for excess trash. All trash carts must be at least five feet away from the nearest object, including parked vehicles.

A contractor, AshBritt, will be collecting the yard waste and other hurricane debris by neighborhood at no charge to the resident. The schedules will be announced at a later time.

Residents may take their tree limbs and yard waste to the Regional Compost site at 18125 FM 1686. All loads must be secured and covered. The normal fee will apply based on the size of the load.

Landfill and compost facility will open Monday from 8 am to 5 pm.

Commercial garbage pick-up resumed this morning.
