Cold-weather collection

With icy temperatures and the possibility of snow 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  
  • Clear a spot for your carts during snow events for the collectors to access them. Carts stuck behind snow berms cannot be emptied by staff safely
  • During snow, when possible, please retrieve your carts at the end of the collection day 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 

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.
