·        Do not cut down trees or do any major yard work.

After the storm has passed

Post-Storm Clean Up Information:

Solar Sanitation WILL NOT be collecting any storm debris on the first pick-up after the storm.

We will be collecting limited amounts of storm debris with each pick up after the first as our priority and focus will need to be on collecting the regular household trash.

·        Do not place debris near or on a fence, mailbox, power line equipment, fire hydrants, poles, transformers, downed wires, water meters, or storm drains.
