Trash Reminders – March 2015

Here are a few helpful reminders from Deepwood’s Trash Policy that will help keep our neighborhood looking clean and attractive:

  1. GENERAL: Trash is picked up on Tuesdays and Fridays (except Christmas and New Year’s Day). Pickup normally occurs around 8 am so it’s a good idea to put your trash out by 7 am on collection (pickup) days. Should you miss a pickup, please remove your trash from the curb until the next collection day.
  2. TRASH IN CONTAINERS: Place trash in sealed hard plastic or metal containers at curbside no earlier than the night (after dark) before pickup. Remove containers from the curb no later than 9 pm on the day of collection. Remember to mark your trash containers with your house number.
  3. TRASH IN BAGS: Do not put out trash in plastic or paper bags until the morning of pickup (not the night before). Leaving bagged trash on the curb overnight brings unwanted animals and disease to our neighborhood. Please be sure to tie your bags securely before putting them out for pickup.
  4. SNOW CONDITIONS: Place trash containers and bags away from locations where plows may cover them. White trash bags have been known to end up as frozen relics in snow banks after plowing.
