Prioritizing Safety

The City of Twin Falls, in collaboration with PSI Environmental Systems, extends its sincere apologies for any inconvenience this situation may cause to residents. The decision to halt collection services is rooted in the safety and well-being of both the drivers and the general public. While many of the main roads are serviced by City snowplows, alleys and residential areas and not serviced, and many neighborhoods are too socked in for the trucks to be able to effectively reach and collect bins.
