    Your Garbage Collection Day May Be Changing: Find Out, Using A Web Page To Which We Link

    (March 15, 2003) -- The world is on the brink of war, a killer pneumonia is spreading...but collecting and recycling LB's garbage rolls on.

    And your garbage collection day may be changing.

    City Hall has a web page you can use to learn details of how your home and/or business may be affected...and links to it below.

    Starting the week of March 24, LB's Environmental Services Bureau will implement a new refuse and recycling collection schedule in LB.

    A written release from LB Energy indicates the new routes divide LB into five consolidated collection areas for each day of the week, offering more consistent refuse collection times, more efficient use of personnel and equipment by consolidating vehicles and staff in one area of the city one day per week, reduced wait time for special item collection and reduce conflicts between refuse collection and street sweeping schedules.

    "This service change will improve customer service, allow for more efficient use of personnel and trucks and help reduce future operating costs," said Acting City Manager Gerald Miller in the written release.

    The release indicates the new route and collection schedule "is the result of a two-year strategic planning process" and part of LB's Energy's commitment to implement cost-effective and environmentally appropriate operations.

    Notices will be sent to residents who have city-operated refuse collection...but readers can find out what their new schedule will be right now:

    Thanks to some internet savvy City of LB employee(s), LB's Environmental Services Bureau provides a web page (linked below) that lets you enter your address...and the new collection day pops up.

    Just click on LB Environmental Services Bureau -- New Refuse Collection Days, go to the right side of the page, enter your street number in the first box, your street name in the second box, click "get day," and your new day should pop up.

    [Comment: Excellent! A very nice customer and taxpayer friendly use of the internet by City Hall. We did notice that in our case, we'll have collection on the same day as we hope the snazzy device really is working.]

    In addition to the forthcoming written notice, the Environmental Services Bureau has a hotline providing information during business hours at (562) 570-2876 (where you can double check.)
