Everyday Safety Measures
-Be aware of your surroundings, including other vehicles and people.
-If out shopping or picking up some items from a store or even unloading your vehicle, look for what might seem unusual or out or place.
-Think about being able to provide a detailed description of people and vehicles.
-Carry your well charged cellphone with 911 readily available for a call.
-If you feel your safety might be in danger, call 911.
-Never leave a gun (or ammunition) in your vehicle. Always lock your vehicle.
-Park your vehicles in your garage. If the garage is attached to the house, close and lock the garage door and lock the door into the house.
-Do not leave your car fob or keys in the vehicle.
-If you do not have a garage, park the vehicle in the driveway and preferably the backyard driveway. Lock the driveway gate.
-Install security cameras and motion sensor lights.
-If your doorbell rings, you can acknowledge their presence through the security camera/doorbell- do not allow them to enter your home.
It is easy to provide a list but when suddenly faced with a dangerous situation you never know how you might react. Stay alert and stay safe.
Trash, Recycling, Yard Waste Pick-up
During the September 2021 Kingsley Commissioner’s meeting the Commissioners voted to
agree to an addendum to the existing WM contract which runs through 6/30/23.
The addendum has the following modifications:
1.Waste Management will provide one(1) 96 gallon recycle hauler on rollers per each Kingsley
2.Recycling will occur every other week (There will not be a price increase as the cost of the larger recycle hauler on rollers is offset by
picking up its contents less frequently.)
3.Regular garbage AND Yard Waste will be weekly
The larger recycle haulers are on order. Upon receipt WM will begin a distribution process during a recycle week.
The week of October 4th with pickup on 10/5 recycle and regular garbage;
The week of October 11th with pickup on 10/12 yardwaste and regular garbage;
The week of October 18th with pickup on 10/19 recycle AND yardwaste AND regular garbage:
The week of October 25th with pickup on 10/26 yardwaste and regular garbage.
Please mark your calendars to help remember the schedule.
To get special alerts, send an email to email@example.com, or hit the Contact Us section of this website.
WM picks up on Tuesday of each week usually between 7AM – 7PM. Items specified should be
placed curbside Monday evening. The trash haulers/cans and recycle bins/haulers are to be
returned to resident’s backyards Tuesday evening. Items should not be placed or left in either
the city easement or curbside between WM collection dates.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation while working through the staffing shortages that
WM has experienced
