Outdoor Basketball Courts and Skatepark Closed
Due to social distancing guidelines, the Highland Park & Recreation Board has decided to close all outdoor basketball courts and the skate park located at Sheppard Park until further notice. We will post updates as information becomes available. Thank you for understanding and complying!
Refuse and Recyclables Collection
Beginning with the March 31, 2020 collection, Republic Services will limit their collection to containerized refuse and recyclables only. This change also includes the suspension of the collection of one large item per week.
Any extra trash, including BAGGED GARBAGE and YARD WASTE, which cannot be placed in the blue trash cart, MUST be placed in a suitable trash container that can be mechanically grabbed and emptied into the truck, without exposure to the driver. Any typical trash container, plastic or metal, would be suitable.
Large items (furniture, appliances, mattresses, etc.) should NOT be left at the curb. Those items may be taken to the public works facility by the homeowner, without charge.
The Highland Parks & Recreation Department is updating its Five Year Master Plan and would appreciate your input. Please take the survey online. If you are unable to do so, please fill out the paper survey in the Forms section. Thank you.
