In anticipation of the new automatic side load trash truck being put into service, City of Minden residential sanitation customers will need to place trash cans curb side for pick up beginning April 29.
Trash cans will need to be placed on the street next to the curb in front of residences by 7:00 a.m. on the customer’s scheduled pick up day. Vehicles should not be parked too close to trash bins in order to provide clearance for automated pick up and avoid personal property damage. With this change it is important to remember trash cans must not remain in City right of way for more than 24 hours by ordinance.
Due to highway traffic and accessibility, residences on Brown Avenue and First Street will be exceptions. Houses on Brown Avenue will continue to have their trash picked up in the alley. Houses on First Street are to place their can on the grass/sidewalk next to the street. Trash pick up at the trailer parks and downtown will also remain the same.
