Missed Solid Waste Collection?
Collection delays can happen for various reasons, the most common being weather-related events that can interfere with service schedules. For all missed garbage, recycling and compostables collections, call your hauler directly within 24 hours. No credit is given for delayed collection, however haulers allow double the amount of items at no extra charge when collection resumes.
