Make sure your totes are right-side-up
Overturned totes could affect service

Due the strong winds McKinney experienced early Wednesday morning, March 29, many garbage and recycling totes that were placed curbside last night were overturned with their contents strewn about. As a reminder, it is the resident's responsibility to place totes right side up and place the contents back inside so Waste Connections can pick up the contents. This affects the Wednesday route.
