    We constantly strive to improve our service, and as a result, our normal pick up time may change. We may come by your home earlier than you expect us. If we miss your waste collection because it has not been put out when we come through your area, please note the new time and place your waste at the curb earlier. In an effort to improve efficiency, we will not be able to return to collect waste that was placed on the street after we passed through the area. Your help in getting all waste collected in an efficient manner is greatly appreciated.
