Slips, trips and falls can occur at any time during the year.
However, with winter at our door, we should pay special attention to this subject because of snow and ice. Both slips and trips result from unintended or unexpected change when contact is made between the foot and a walking surface.
Good housekeeping; quality of walking surfaces; selection of proper footwear; and appropriate pace of walking are critical for preventing slips and trips.
Keep safe by paying attention to any hazard that may cause a person to slip or trip and if at all possible, take care of the hazard before you or someone else has an accident.
That’s a Bunch of Garbage!!!
Your Fairfield Glade Sanitation Department would like to review the various policies and safety procedures that need to be followed regarding trash pick-up. The department strives to provide our community with the best service possible but need your help in following these simple rules.
Trash Pick-up Do’s and Don’ts
Do have your trash out before 8 A.M. the morning of your designated pick-up day. This will save the Club significant fuel costs and time by not having to go back and pick-up trash because it wasn’t out in time.
Do limit the weight of your trash to 40 pounds per trash bag.
Do use trash bags instead of leaving loose trash.
Do recycle cardboard which can be taken to the transfer station located on Peavine Road on your way to town. This is especially true for heavy cardboard like moving boxes.
Don’t include construction debris, furniture, appliances, etc. … they can only pick-up residential trash.
Don’t include the following items in your trash: live ammunition, paint, motor oil, and dead animals.
Probably the biggest fear our Sanitation Department has is getting hit by an impatient motorist. We’ve actually had residents drive their vehicle in the ditch to get around a sanitation truck because they are in a hurry to get somewhere. This is unsafe for all parties. There is ample time between pick-up stops to safely pass the sanitation trucks. Please realize the sanitation crew has a hard enough job to do without having to worry about getting hit by a motorist.
Frequently asked questions regarding sanitation service is attached for your convenience. Thank you for helping us provide trash pick-up service in a productive and safe manner.
