Flooding / Storm Issues

We understand that with storms and heavy rain it results in an excess amount of waterflow through many parts of town. Our department works as efficiently as possible and cannot always respond to phone calls regarding such matters.

In order to properly handle issues that may arise, we ask that you please email so work orders can be processed, and we can ensure these matters are addressed properly.

We thank you for your patience.

Garbage and Recycling

All garbage and recycling pickups are handled by Filco Carting Corp, please call them directly at 833-463-4526 if you have any questions or issues regarding your scheduled pickups. The Department of Public Works cannot arrange for additional garbage and recycling pickups and all inquiries must be handled directly through Filco Carting Corp.
