At the City of Ashland’s Sanitation Department, the health and safety of our employees, customers and our community are a top priority. We recognize the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is evolving rapidly, and we are continuously evaluating the situation to ensure we can continue to provide superior service and support to our customers across the city. Based on the available information, we are currently maintaining our standard operations. The City of Ashland is actively following the CDC’s guidelines to keep our employees safe. We appreciate your patience as we prepare our employees and facilities across the city to continue providing the services our customers need and expect.
How you can help:
- Bag all of your trash. This reduces employee exposure to items like used tissues and other personal hygiene products.
- Place trash at the curb the night before scheduled service.
- Continue to place recycling on the curb. Ensure you only place the correct items on the curb. Remember items like trash bags and grocery bags, tissues, napkins and paper cups aren’t accepted. For more information on recycling, see the recycling guidelines.
- Properly dispose of medical sharps. Medical sharps used to administer medication to individuals or pets should be placed in a rigid plastic container, clearly marked “Sharps”, sealed shut and placed in trash.
