    Heads up for last Monday’s food/yard waste customers that were not serviced.  The City identified these customers can leave out a double amount this week. 

    The driver picking up in my neighborhood was recording the additional material.  Why is the driver doing this?  The City stated last week that leaving out double as appropriate to make up for the missed collection.

      That’s weird the driver filmed it. I saw the note on the spu website so I left out double today as well and was afraid I would get billed for it and have to call to get it credited. I guess we will see.

      I can’t remember, did they pick up anything last Monday, on the heat wave day?        

Sorry, comment time is over.
