Guide to Quality Service

  • Be ready on collection day. Once crews pass through your area, they cannot return for late collections. Return collections are expensive in fuel, labor and maintenance costs.
  • Place limbs curbside, in your yard, not on sidewalk or in the street
  • Do not place limbs over sidewalks  or other obstructions.
  • Do not mix limbs with other debris or trash.
  • Do not block limb piles with vehicles.
