Even during inclement weather, FCI makes every effort to pick up regularly scheduled stops. However, occasionally, icy or snowy roads make driving conditions too hazardous for our drivers and we may be forced to cancel pickups for that day. In these cases, we will pick up all of your trash on your next regularly scheduled pickup day.
Please note that safety is our top priority and that unforeseen circumstances may force changes to this schedule. We will communicate changes to you on our website — please check back here in case you are unsure.
Tips for setting out extra materials after a weather delay
Extra Garbage: Place next to garbage container in securely tied plastic bags or 32-gal can (55-lb weight limit)
Extra Recycling: Paper and cardboard materials become non-recyclable when exposed to prolonged moisture (rain, snow, etc). To ensure these items are recycled, it is essential to hold them until they fit in your recycling cart. This will keep paper materials dry so they can be recycled. Remember, no recycling in plastic bags.
Extra Yard Debris (No food scraps or plastic)
Place next to yard debris cart in:
- Heavy paper yard debris bags or
- 32-gal cans (55-lb weight limit) with handles & lids labels “yard debris” or
- Bundles tied with twine (4’x 2’ limit)
