The Importance of Trash & Recycle Cart Placement: A Reminder

posted Nov 30, 2018, 5:36 AM by Leona Oceania

It is very important that trash and recycle carts are placed correctly (especially this time of year) to ensure effective and efficient trash pick up. As a reminder: carts should be place two feet apart from one another; this enables the arms on the truck to pick up each cart as it needs to. If they are placed too close together, you run the risk of the truck not picking up your carts. Also, particularly this time of year, be sure to place your carts in your driveway, a bit back from the road. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE YOUR CARTS IN THE ROADWAYS. Carts placed in the roadways during the snow season risk being hit by snowplows, etc. The arms on the trash truck are designed to reach 10-12 feet, so having your carts sit back in your driveway a bit (two feet apart from each other!) is ideal.

Please see attachment for more detail.

Cummings Road Bridge Project

posted Nov 27, 2018, 1:17 PM by Leona Oceania   [ updated Nov 27, 2018, 1:19 PM ]

The Maine Turnpike Cummings Road Bridge Project will begin tomorrow, November 28th, 2018. This initial phase will include clearing, grubbing, hauling sand, and the installation of wick drains. This work is is anticipated to continue through the end of January. Unfortunately, the construction will affect traffic, as they will need to shift the traffic flow on Cummings Road due to reducing the width of the road for the barrier. 

Attached is the project information sheet, which includes the basics about the project and traffic impacts. You may also visit the Maine Turnpike web page for more information: http://www.maineturnpike.com/cummingsroad
