Winter Weather Guidelines

Your safety and our driver's safety is the number one priority at Bend Garbage & Recycling. Here are some reminders that you, our customer, need to know.
  • Please maintain access to roll carts, containers and enclosures by clearing snow and ice. Our drivers are generally working by themselves and icy conditions or areas not shoveled can make it impossible for them to provide service. 
  • Bag wet waste to help prevent garbage from freezing to the bottom of your roll cart.
  • Fireplace ashes must be COLD. Warm ashes can flare up in our trucks.
  • Bag packing peanuts, cold ashes, kitty litter and any other debris that could easily blow around while your roll cart is being emptied. 
  • Please be sure your carts are out by 6:00 a.m. or the night before so your cart is not missed. 

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 541-382-2263.
