Shelbyville Street Department announces it will no longer have a limit on bags of trash due to COVID-19

Shelbyville Street Commissioner Doug Hunt released the following information regarding trash collection:

 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the amount of children and families at home, practicing social distancing, the street department will no longer have a limit on bags of trash that are collected during the weekly stops.  We will collect all bags of trash that are tied closed and out for collection. This will continue until announced otherwise.

 

We are asking residents to PLEASE cooperate and do not place loose trash in their cans or loose trash on the ground. It is very important that everyone bag all trash for our weekly collection.

 

We are taking serious precautions to protect our crews, their families, and the city residents and their families from germs and contamination, in order to continue services to the public.

 

Any bags that are left open and not tied up with loose trash exposed or cans with loose trash will not be collected. 

 

Recycling is going to continue to be collected.

 

We will announce any and all changes from our department to the public news outlets and our Street Department Facebook Page. 

 

We thank the citizens for taking this seriously and for cooperating with our crews. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 317-392-5169
