Heights alternates heavy trash schedule
The Heights Solid Waste Department reminds citizens that tree waste and junk waste are picked up on an alternated schedule.
Tree waste is clean wood waste such as tree limbs, branches and stumps. Lumber, furniture and treated wood are not accepted. Junk waste is furniture, appliances and other bulky material, as well as a maximum of four cubic yards of building material.
Residents should note that while junk waste may not be placed for collection during a tree waste month, tree waste is accepted during junk waste months. To ensure that all tree waste is recycled, the department encourages residents to keep tree waste materials until the next designated month or bring it to a neighborhood depository.
All waste should be placed adjacent to the front curb from 6 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. on your scheduled collection day in a location easily accessible to collection crews.
Material should not be stacked under low overhead electrical wires or other cabling, signs or mailboxes; next to fences or posts; or on top of water meters, gas meters, fire hydrants or other exposed utility components; or in the street, on the sidewalk or other right-of-way, or in any manner which would interfere with pedestrian or vehicular traffic.
Styrofoam blocks or loose packing material should not be mixed in with waste piles. Residents are encouraged to bring Styrofoam to the Westpark Consumer Recycling Center or neighborhood depositories.
