Let's Prevent Unpleasant Accidents by Properly Disposing of Glass and Needles
Posted Date: 1/24/2014

Nobody likes to get cut with broken glass or stuck with a needle and neither do our friendly garbage collectors and landfill employees. In order to prevent unpleasant accidents, please follow these easy steps before setting your garbage at the curb:

  1. Place any needles in an empty laundry detergent jug or other container before disposal.
  2. Please wrap any broken mirror glass in newspaper and tape before placing in a garbage bag or in a box marked "broken mirror."
  3. Please place any broken bottles or jars in a cardboard box clearly marked "broken glass."

We appreciate your help in keeping our community safe!
