SOUTH CENTRAL RECYCLING delivered a supply of trash and recycle bags at the end of July. The next delivery is planned for late February. These bags are to be used for your household trash and recycling materials only - not to bag leaves, grass clippings and other unintended purposes. Once you run out, you will need to purchase your own bags until South Central Recycling delivers the next supply.
CALL 911 for any emergency, including reporting an after-hours maintenance issue such as a water main break or sewer back-up. The appropriate law enforcement officer, emergency service personnel or city staff will be dispatched.
