Garbage Collection halted because of Cold Weather


Garbage pickup on Saturday was halted because of the cold weather.

Many residents placed their garbage out for pickup on Saturday and later discovered the garbage truck wasn’t comming.  Waste Management canceled garbage collection on Saturday at approximately 11am because of the cold weather.  At some points during Saturday the temperature dropped to -46 with the wind chill.

Garbage collection was already running behind because of New Years Day.  At this time it’s unknown when collection will resume as we all wait for the temperature to increase.
