After careful deliberation and discussions with local mayors on the safest way to provide service to the residents while still maintaining safety to our employees, I have decided to resume bagged yard waste pick up with some new restrictions. To avoid possible exposure to covid-19 you must call the office at 259-2490 and be put on a 72 hour waiting list from the time you place the bags at the curb until the time the bags are picked up.  No bags will be picked up without first being placed on the list.   From April 7th through April 9th we will pick up the bags that have been sitting out for the past weeks.  Since brush pickup often requires more than one employee to be in close contact it will not be resumed at this time. It has also been decided that the property located at 1010 8th St, Cottage Hills, will currently remain closed to the public.
