A Scary Trend

We need your HELP!

Hazardous waste continues to be an issue we are now dealing with on a WEEKLY basis. It should NEVER go in your curbside trash and recycling.

The result is always the same…a FIRE. This puts our employees lives in danger and causes major down time for our crews. We are already short-staffed due to a number of reasons and THIS has a ripple effect on our service.

When a truck catches on fire, it must immediately pull over in an opening parking lot and dump all contents out of the truck. 911 must be called, fire crews have to come put it out, hazmat occasionally has to get involved, and our employees need checked out for injuries. A professional cleaning crew must then come out and clean up any residue from the parking lot we dumped on.

Please do not put pool chemicals (or chemicals of any kind), rechargeable batteries, propane tanks, or anything else that could be combustible in your curbside trash and recycling. THANK YOU!

Here’s our resource guide for safe disposal of hazardous waste – http://ow.ly/sgLF50AzZPq
