Trash pickup problems following Christmas

MGN

For the past two weeks, The Sanitation Department missed Tuesday pickups, leaving many individuals frustrated with their excess trash.

The Sanitation Department was closed December 25th-26th and New Year's day, leaving trash to pile up.

Dennis Pino, Transfer Station Manager understands the frustration. “We are essential personal, garbage has to be picked up that's what we get paid to do. We should be out there and we should do the job. That's what we will do from this point on.”

The Sanitation Department is working on cleaning up the trash left behind. If you are an individual with surplus trash, the department is allowing residents to drop off your trash free of charge.
