  5. Green Waste Collection Deadline: The last full week of November signals the end of green waste collection for 2023. Ensure that all your green waste is in your can before the specified date on your regular garbage day. Green waste pick up will resume in April 2024.
  6. Protect Your Pipes This Thanksgiving: While preparing your Thanksgiving feast, be mindful of what goes down the drain to prevent future plumbing issues.
    • Limit Fats, Oil, and Grease (FOG): Properly dispose of fats, oil, and grease in designated containers to avoid clogging the sewer system.
    • Regular Lateral Servicing: Residents are encouraged to service their private laterals regularly to prevent potential blockages and maintain a smoothly functioning sewer system.
    • Commercial Grease and Sand Trap Maintenance: Commercial users should remain vigilant in maintaining grease and sand traps to prevent any disruptions to the local sewer collection system.

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
