The entire FWDCA area is served by the Northwest police precinct. You should call the precinct about abandoned vehicles and other non-emergency situations.
Regular trash pickup and yard waste pickup is on Tuesday.
CREWS TO START YARD WASTE COLLECTION APRIL 4
The Department of Public Works will pick up yard waste — leaves, grass clippings, and twigs — on the same day as your scheduled weekly trash collection. The yard waste collection begins in April through the first week in December (weather permitting).
DPW will collect Christmas trees during the first two weeks of January. Place trees near the Courville container on your weekly trash collection day.
All yard waste must be placed at the curb at least six feet from your Courville container in biodegradable paper bags or a personal garbage can. DPW will not collect yard waste in plastic bags. Residents who set out yard waste more than 24 hours before their scheduled pickup will be subject to a fine.
