KREITZER WILL NOT PICK UP TRASH OR RECYCLING ON A HOLIDAY.  They will pick-up trash or recycling the next day!

The pickup times may change due to any reason, so putting out your trash the night BEFORE will ensure your trash will be picked up.

According to Ordinance #422 each property must pay for trash service whether a pickup is conducted or not, only business and apartment buildings with over EIGHT units are excluded.

Make sure your trash can lids are secured and your trash bags tied tightly.

When paying your trash payments through personal checking accounts or Bill Paying over the Internet, always make sure that your current account number is listed clearly on the check to ensure proper credit to your account.
