Extra Pick Up for Compost Bins - Friday November 3rd.

Happy Halloween!

For those who have compost bins, the truck will continue for this week to pick up those jack-o-lanterns 🎃. For those who don’t have the compost bins we would ask you to not put your pumpkins in the garbage bins but rather take them to the compost pile at the transfer station on Wednesday or Saturday. This will help reduce the tonnage that we send to the landfill.

Thanks for your help!

Have a safe and fun Halloween 🎃 👻
