Public Works - Sanitation Divison

ATTENTION: If you noticed us running behind today for trash pickup, we apologize! We have had mechanical issues with several of our rear loaders, however, crews will be working overtime through the weekend to take care of all of our residents as quickly as they can. We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue!
