Please Bag & Tie Trash - No Loose Trash!

PLEASE BE MINDFUL- Trash needs to be bagged and tied up. Many people are leaving a lot of loose trash in the cans, including a lot of tissues, latex gloves** and paper towels from sanitizing that could have the virus. For the health & safety of the DPW crews, and your fellow neighbors, please dispose of your trash properly and responsibly. Help us help you.
** No matter what type of gloves, (latex, nitrile, vinyl), they are not recyclable. Put them in the trash. Gloves that end up in recycling contaminate good recyclables and can turn entire bales of material into trash.
Protect yourself from COVID-19 by wearing gloves; protect the environment by keeping all gloves out of the recycling bin or cart.
The National Institute of Health now says the virus can live:
·  In the air, as aerosolized droplets, for up to 3 hours
·  Cardboard surfaces for up to 24 hours
·  plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours
