Gray Garbage Program

 

 

Overflow garbage will only be collected when pre-paid tags are affixed to the trash bag(s). Beginning October 1, 2019, call ACI to purchase tags or to arrange for additional service.

 

Materials from a construction, demolition or landscaping project do not belong in your carts. Beginning October 1, 2019, call ACI to order a temporary debris box for these items.
