Holiday reminder: Garbage and organics collection

Your garbage and organics collection day will change over the holidays.

Keep up to date on your pickup day and any weather-related collection notices with the DNVCollect app available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Cold-weather collection

With snow and icy temperatures in the forecast, here are some tips for managing your garbage and organics:                

  • Carts should only be set out on the morning of collection day, not the night before, including during snow events  
  • During snow, when possible, please retrieve your carts after collection, so they do not interfere with snow and ice clearing               
  • Organics can freeze during low temperatures. Stir your cart with a broom handle or shovel to prevent it from sticking to the inside of your cart

Recycling light strings

Did you discover some burnt-out string lights when decorating this year? You can recycle them for free at participating drop-off locations. For more information, visit the Light Recycle website.
