Just a friendly reminder to residents that during the winter months garbage that is placed on a snow bank, behind a snow bank, or too far back beyond your property line will not be picked up by Hortness Enterprises during their garbage collection. Also remember we are no longer placing garbage in the alleys, but at the front on the street/curb.
The ideal placement of garbage is where it can easily be accessed for pickup. Place your garbage on the curb if possible. If there is a snow piled there, please place your garbage in front of the snow, and on the street if necessary. If garbage is left out and is torn apart or otherwise disturbed, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to clean it up. We recommend using a garbage container with a lid to prevent torn garbage. The town men will pick up bagged garbage left behind, but there is no guarantee how quickly that will be, especially if there are more pressing tasks such as snow removal.
If you have any questions please feel free to call Hortness Enterprises at 306-452-3713 or us here at the town office for clarification.
