My garbage container is broken or was stolen. What do I do?

From time to time maintenance is required on containers or they may need to be replaced. Call the Public Works Department at 758-7720 to request a repair or replacement. A supervisor will assess the container. If it is beyond repair due to normal wear and tear, or was damaged while being serviced, it will be repaired or replaced free of charge. Containers will not be replaced for free because of abuse. Stolen or missing containers are handled on a case by case basis.

For assistance with any of these situations, contact the Public Works Department at 758-7720.
