If none of the reasons why your garbage may not have been picked up apply, please report your missed collection and we'll take care of it.

After you call, be sure to put your garbage out at your regular collection spot by 7:30am the following two weekday mornings (but keep it inside at night).

Missed collection during snowfall

If we're unable to collect your garbage or organics because of heavy snow, please remove your materials from the curb, and then set them out again on your next regularly scheduled collection day.
