The Minden Sanitation and Recycling Department will enact several changes effective April 3. A map and description of the adjustments was included in the March utility bill of City customers.
Some residents will be affected by modifications in the trash collection schedule. Thursday customers north of Lexington Street will have their trash collected on Wednesdays. Friday customers located in Minden West Estates and west of 31 Road will also have their trash collection days moved to Wednesday. Trash bins will need to be in their designated pick up area on the new collection days at the beginning of April or trash will not be removed.
All customers will also need to be sure trash is bagged and tied for collection. Any bag, as long as it is tied shut, is acceptable. The goal is to keep litter from blowing around town.
