Garbage Collection

We are asking that community members to deliver any items that are too large to fit inside the garbage bins to the landfill, not to leave it beside the bins and to place all garbage into bags. Large items are not included in pick up, makes our community look bad and this is not respectful.

Please make sure all garbage is in bags and the bags are in the bins.  Garbage left outside the bins attracts dogs and bears.

We thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
