NOTICE: NO PLASTIC BAGS WITH RECYCLABLES
Attn: Ottawa Sanitation has informed us that recycling CANNOT be in Wal-Mart bags or trash bags per the recycling company due to the fact that their machine cannot process them. We were informed the recycling company may stop our recycling service if this keeps happening. This includes the recycling bin at the Public Works Department. Please dump all recycling from the bags into the container and keep the bags. DO NOT put the bags in the container. Thank you for your help with this matter!
NOTICE: DO NOT FLUSH WIPES
You may have seen all the ads on TV lately for “flush able” wipes. Well, it turns out that isn’t exactly the right word to use. That’s because, like a lot of other items would, they’ll flush but they don’t ever dissolve. The Public Works Department says these wipes don’t break down in water, so their treatment plant has to use equipment to pull plastic, wipes (even flush able) rubber gloves, rags, or paper towels out because our sewer system is not designed to handle these items, sometimes their equipment gets clogged or broken by all the wipes and other trash.
Please make sure to set your trash out by 6:00 A.M. on your trash day’s to ensure pickup.
NOTICE: CITY NO LONGER ACCEPTING LEAVES, BRUSH AND YARD DEBRIS
As of December 12th, 2019 the City will no longer be accepting leaves, brush, and yard debris at the City lot. We have had numerous complaints regarding smoke and blowing ash from residents who live nearby that location. That along with the illegal dumping in the brush pile has moved council to ban dumping altogether.
The City is working on an ordinance to allow residents to burn leaves with a permit in their ditches certain times of the year. The Ordinance will be posted when it has passed at a later date.
Wed 5-7p.m., Sat 8-11 a.m.
Will run thru September!
