Rain, snow, wind… nothing can deter us, but it might delay us by a few hours or even a day. We understand the importance of keeping garbage and recycling from blowing around on stormy days, so we have developed several tips for customers who need to secure their trash and recycling.
PREPARING FOR A STORM
- Bag all of your trash and tie the bag closed.
- Subscribe to side yard service; available year-round or just for the winter.
- Don’t overload your cart. If the lid is partially open, it will blow open in strong winds.
- Don’t put your cart out overnight if the forecast calls for windy and/or stormy weather (Cans/carts do need to be out by 7am on your service day).
SECURE YOUR LID
Place a rock or another large object on top of the can/cart.
We have developed a wind latch to prevent the wind from blowing open the lids of any of our carts. There is a one-time fee of $15.00 (per cart) for the modification.
