Please respect the signs showing what is allowed in each dumpster. One Dumpster is for Residential Trash-please bag your trash to help keep Adams clean as well as the landfill. One Dumpster is for Metal, including appliances, lawn mowers, etc. Please get all your refuse into the dumpsters and clean up the area when you are done. If the dumpsters are nearing full (garbage is at the level of the top of the dumpster) please call the City of Adams and let us know. Humbert Refuse asked that the garbage not be any more full than level so garbage does fly away as they haul it away to the dump. They are very quick in replacing the full dumpster so please call City Hall at 541-566-9380 if they are full and we will get it taken care of! Thanks! NO TIRES, BATTERIES, TV’S OR COMPUTER COMPONENTS ARE ALLOWED IN EITHER DUMPSTER. YOU ARE ON CAMERA!
