Garbage Collection Reminder
After noticing some improperly placed garbage receptacles recently, the Infrastructure Services Division is looking to remind all Hintonites of the proper bin placement procedure for black roll off carts.
If you have a black roll off cart, please place the container on the street by 7:00 a.m. on your collection day with the wheels away from the curb/driveway. If your container is not placed out properly, the bin could fall into the truck and cause damage to the truck and possible injury to the operator. Also, during the winter months, please remove snow from the top of the garbage bins as this causes problems with the compaction of the garbage.
Two more important things to be aware of:
- Do not place black bins near vehicles (or do not park vehicle next to black bin)
- Do not place black bins out side by side (close to another bin).
