Protecting Waste Collection Workers during COVID-19

As a precaution for the health and safety of waste collection workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that you please:

  • Dispose of used personal hygiene products, wipes, face masks and gloves in your garbage cart.
  • Securely tie garbage bags shut and place in your garbage cart on your regular collection day.
  • If you’re sick or caring for someone who is sick, double bag all personal waste in plastic garbage bags.
  • Do not approach our waste collection drivers.
