Please  keep the rights of way clear of vehicles, boats, gear and any other personal property through July. And remember, Chip seal remember is tar, so be careful of children and pets getting it on their feet. If you have questions, please contact Bill Howard 253-6332.

*** (HOLDING TANK) ****************************************************

Please remember that harbor users pay for the dumpsters at the harbor. Those are NOT publicly funded dumpsters. The harbor will charge a fee if household trash is being put in the harbor dumpster.

The city’s utility drop box has moved from the lower lot at the Cordova Center to the upper lot. It’s now located near the exit from the Cordova Center parking lot.

Public Works reminds everyone that toilet paper dissolves in minutes… but paper towels, feminine hygiene products, and wet wipes can take weeks or even months. The only things that you should flush down your toilet are human waste and toilet paper -- other materials clog the industrial grade sewer pumps, which causes them to become damaged and overheat, meaning more cost for public works, and higher utility bills for Cordova citizens. You may also be putting your own sewer line at risk for costly repairs or maintenance.  For more information, call 424-6200.

The City of Cordova continues to collect and bail aluminum cans, in fact it’s their most successful recycling effort.  But it ruins the process when people place other objects in the aluminum can recycling dumpster -- so please don’t do that.  Also, people have a tendency to leave large piles of trash that block entrance to our City Landfill. It’s difficult for the crews to do their jobs when they start their day facing a mess like that… so please take your refuse directly to the baler.

In case you hadn't heard, The City of Cordova has updated its vehicle disposal policy. You may now arrange to bring your vehicle to the 17-Mile Landfill any time throughout the year for a flat disposal rate of $50.  Please contact the Refuse Department to arrange for disposal before bringing vehicle out to the 17-Mile Landfill, 424-5600.
