Garbage is being collected. The Sanitation Department is collecting as per the normal pick up schedule. However, given the number of downed trees and wires some streets may be inaccessible to the sanitation trucks. Every effort will be made to collect garbage and recyclables according to the normal schedule and to reach all residents.
Numerous streets across the City are blocked because of fallen trees and tree limbs. The Department of Public Works has moved 150 – 200 downed trees of various sizes to the road side. Clearing of those trees will begin today. To report a downed tree or tree limb that is blocking the street, call 422-1202.
