Pecan Lane

Pecan Lane is a private street not sufficiently wide or stable to safely allow the Contractor to collect the Solid Waste or Recyclables using an automated or semi-automated collection vehicle.

FCC will utilize a pickup with a trailer that can safely maneuver and collect carts and return the carts to the eighteen (18) units on Pecan Lane. They can also collect bulky waste for the residents of Pecan Lane with a pickup and trailer. They can perform this service on an On-Call basis.
