The Herron Island ferry will be down for its “out of water” Coast Guard inspection and routine maintenance after the 10:00am run on Monday September 15th for two weeks. To accommodate for the dates we will be unable to provide service due to the ferry closure, please feel free to place out double your subscribed service level for garbage on Monday September 29th at no additional cost. Participating yard waste customers may place out any additional yard waste items that do not fit in your provided container for collection on Monday October 6th. Please prepare extra yard waste items in paper biodegradable bags or a can labeled “yard waste” to ensure pick up. Participating recycling customers may place out any additional recyclable items that do not fit in your provided container for collection on Wednesday October 8th. Please prepare recycling items in a cardboard box or can labeled “Recycling” to ensure pick up.
Example: A garbage customer who subscribes to 1-32 gallon garbage can weekly with recycling every-other-week and yard waste every-other-week will have the following pick up schedule:
Monday 9/22-- No garbage collection (ferry closure)
Monday 9/22-- No yard waste collection (ferry closure)
Wednesday 9/24—No recycling collection (ferry closure)
Monday 9/29-- Drivers will service up to 2-32 gallon garbage cans or bags @ no additional cost. (Any additional items beyond the allotted two cans, double the subscribed amount of service, will be serviced at an additional fee of $4.07 per extra 32-gallon can or bag.)
Monday 10/6-- Drivers will service any additional yard waste items that do not fit in the provided cart at no additional charge. Please prepare these items by placing in paper biodegradable bags or a can labeled “yard waste” to not be confused with the garbage.
Wednesday 10/8--Drivers will service any additional recycling items that do not fit in the provided cart at no additional charge. Please prepare these items by placing in a cardboard box or can labeled “recycling” to not be confused with the garbage.
Once again, due to the ferry closure please double up on your garbage on Monday September 29th, double up on yard waste on Monday October 6th, and double up on recycling Wednesday October 8th at no additional cost. Please be sure to have your items available curbside either the night before or no later than 7:00am on your service day to ensure collection. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
