Recycling containers: tips for better service
Earlier this year the first phase of City-provided recycling containers were delivered to portions of several collection routes. Over the next several years, additional recycling containers will be purchased and delivered to all residents. Our goal is for recycling, like waste pick-up, will be automated. Until you receive the City recycling container, make sure that the orange ‘RECYCLING’ sticker is readily visible on your container. If you need the sticker, Call Public Works, 428-4782, and we’ll mail it to you. The City reminds residents of the proper placement of your waste and recycling containers. We ask that your two containers – waste and recycling - be placed on opposite sides of your drive, but not within 3 feet of a mailbox of other structure.

Bicycle Safety Reminders from the Centerville Police Department
As we anticipate the increase in bicycle traffic, the Centerville Police Department would like to remind the bicyclists and motorists alike to keep an eye out for each other and share the roads safely. Motorists should always look twice and signal before changing lanes, turning at intersections, and allow a safe distance between your vehicle and cyclists as you pass. Bicyclists share in the same responsibilities and should obey all traffic laws just as the drivers of vehicles do. Regardless of your age, you should always wear a protective helmet when riding a bicycle to help prevent often avoidable head injuries and set a great example for our youth. If you are under eighteen years of age we want to remind you and your parents of the City of Centerville ordinance that requires you to wear an approved bicycle helmet when operating or riding as a passenger on a bicycle in the City of Centerville. pdf Click here for the press release.
