Heat Causing Solid Waste and Yard Waste Pickup Delays

Heat has significantly impacted the readiness of our solid waste and yard waste trucks. As a result, we haven’t had enough available trucks to maintain solid waste and yard waste pickup schedules. Equipment issues with these trucks in such hot and humid conditions as we’ve experienced over the last few weeks are not uncommon. We apologize to residents for the inconvenience. Our first priority is to pick up solid waste (green carts). Our staff is currently working on its off days of Wednesdays and Saturdays to catch up on missed routes. Our second priority is yard waste (brown carts) and it may not be collected this week. At this time, it is recommended to leave solid waste out for pickup and it will be collected as soon as possible. We hope to be back on schedule next week and will keep residents informed on our progress.

Benefits of Accreditation

The Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE) serves as the governing body for the organizations that offer accreditation, education, and certification services to first responders and fire service industry professionals and agencies.  The Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) is in charge of the process that represents fire and emergency service agencies around the world.  The CFAI program is a comprehensive self-assessment and evaluation model that enables fire and emergency service organizations to examine past, current, and future service levels/performance and compare them to industry best practices.  The following is a list of benefits that this process provides the department and the community it serves.

  • Assures colleagues and the public that the department has definite missions and objectives that are appropriate for the jurisdictions served
  • Provides a detailed evaluation of the services provided to the community 
  • Determines community risk and safety needs
  • Creates a mechanism for developing strategic and program action plans
  • Evaluates the performance of the department
  • Establishes a method for achieving continuous organizational improvements
  • Helps to justify programs and budgetary needs through performance measurements
  • Helps to identify strengths and weaknesses within the department 
  • Creates methods or systems for addressing deficiencies while building organizational success
  • Identifies potential risks and enables the department to effectively mitigate emergencies with appropriate resources
  • Fosters national recognition by colleagues and the public
