GARBAGE COLLECTION UPDATE
Effective June 19th, Waste Management will begin running it’s normal trash collection route in reverse. This means they begin on the Southside on 98 traveling east to avoid the traffic and once finished with Hwy. 98, the driver will then start at the East end of the city and work back towards the West. The rationale for this change is so that neighborhoods in bear prone areas can now set the cans out in the morning without fear of missing a collection. Having to put the cans by the curb at night for an early morning collection, gave bears more time to search for a food source. The City and Waste Management hope this will reduce the number of bear interactions in our neighborhoods. Please help us spread the word.
