To The Honorable Mayor,
I’m so grateful to the sanitation department for taking our garbage every week. It’s not an easy job. However our garbage pickup time has been getting increasingly earlier. It used to be that the garbage trucks would come at 6:30 am which is really early, but today they came at 5:15 Am. They make a lot of noise and wake up my family. I understand that they start their route early to avoid Lakewood traffic. So I’m wondering if there can be a rotation system where they go to different areas at that time so that we can sometimes have a break in waking up so early from all the noise.
Thanks for your consideration.
Response from Mayor Coles:
Thanks for writing
We are currently working to try to revamp garbage pickup in town to avoid both the early and late noise as well making sure the trucks don’t make it harder for busses and folks trying to get to work.
