It’s hard to believe but summer is really here at last! While our hard working team loves to be on the job each and every day, we do take a few holidays off so everyone can enjoy spending time with their families.
Here’s how this impacts trash collection services in our service area, including Redding, CT, Ridgefield, CT, Wilton CT, Danbury CT and more. On the Fourth of July, we will be closed. That means there’s no trash pickup on Monday, and the entire schedule is delayed one day. In other words, Monday Customers will be serviced on Tuesday. Tuesday Customers will be serviced on Wednesday. Wednesday Customers will be serviced on Thursday. Thursday Customers will be serviced on Friday.
This same pattern repeats on Labor Day, which is Monday, September 5th. To repeat, that week, Monday Customers will be serviced on Tuesday. Tuesday Customers will be serviced on Wednesday. Wednesday Customers will be serviced on Thursday. Thursday Customers will be serviced on Friday.
This will be the only expected change in our schedule until Thanksgiving.
Here are some tips for keeping your rolling trash containers pleasant to deal with all summer long.
Summer’s hot temperatures and household garbage can be a pretty nasty combination. To keep your rolling trash containers clean and sanitary, here are some helpful tips.
First, all trash should be bagged in bags that are closed securely. Try to keep trash on the inside of the bag – especially food items. A little drizzle of ketchup or some cat food squished on the outside of a trash bag may not seem like it’s a big deal, but these items draw flies. And where you’ll have flies, you will soon have maggots, which almost nobody enjoys dealing with.
Don’t be afraid to spray your rolling trash container out with the hose if it’s starting to get a little funky. Dump out the excess water and any mess, and let the container dry thoroughly before putting more bagged trash in it.
