Due to the snow accumulating in the alleys, an alternative garbage plan has been put in place. Alleys are not plowed for several reasons, narrowness of alleys for big equipment, number of garages and parked cars in the alleys, fences, as well as limited equipment, crews and time.
Beginning this week, large cans in the alleys will not be picked up until further notice.
Instead, additional large cans will be placed at the Recycling Center and on Liberty Street behind the Courthouse for residents to dump trash.
These cans will be picked up daily. Those residents having small cans at the front curb will continue to have their garbage picked up daily until further notice.
These cans are available for use by any City residents.
The City wants to avoid having to cancel garbage pickup and this is a good alternative although inconvenient for many of us. We will try to continue Commercial pickup as usual if we can access the alleys. We appreciate residents’ patience and cooperation as we deal with the accumulation of snow.
