Secure Your Load Properly

Residents are reminded to secure their load properly by tying large items to their vehicle and covering loose material with a tarp.

    If you have items that are in good condition and can be reused, you can donate them. The online Reuse and Recycling Directory will provide you with a list of charities, businesses and City services that can reuse, recycle or dispose of your unwanted household items.
