Patterson trash truck remains out of service

The City of Patterson says the truck used to pick up trash in Patterson remains out of service.  Steve Bierhorst, with the city, said in a press release that they are attempting to pick up trash manually by using dump trailers.  They are asking citizens to do the following:

 

  • All trash and leaves that are in plastic bags are to be placed in your garbage can for twice a week pick up.
  • All small twigs and branches are to be broken small enough to be also placed in your garbage can for twice a week pick up.
  • Items small enough to be placed in your garbage can need to be placed in your can for twice a week pickup.
  • If you have tree limbs that will not fit in your garbage can please place them in a separate pile and do not mix it with trash and debris. Tree limbs will be picked up and shredded into mulch for the public to use. If you have tree limbs to be picked up you must call the City Hall @ 985-395-5205 to get placed on the pickup list.
