RIVERVIEW RUBBISH PICK UP NOTICE TO RESIDENTS

Many residents are not conforming to the new trash hauler's guidelines of making sure their garbage totes have the numbers facing the street and the handle should be at the curb.  The haulers now have a mechanical arm that picks up the tote and lifts it overhead to dump  into the truck.  Please follow these guidelines as the workers are wasting time having to get out to turn all the totes the correct way so that the arm will work. 

Please kindly inform your neighbor who is doing it incorrectly as not all residents have the internet.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
