Q: Does the City of Gardiner pick-up my household trash?
A: No. You can go the the City Manager's section of this website for a list of trash haulers (view here). You can also purchase a permit for Hatch Hill from the City of Augusta and haul it yourself.
Q: You plowed in the end of my driveway. Why can't you lift the plow at my driveway?
A: We would love to be able to do that. However, it would make it nearly impossible to totally clean the travelway of the road.
Q: The sewer line from my house to the City's main in the street is plugged. Will you come and fix it?
A: The City maintains the house services to the edge of the road or the inside of the sidewalk, if a sidewalk is present. We will not do any maintenance from the edge of the road or sidewalk to the dwelling structure served by the connection.
Q: Can I come to the Public Works garage and get sand and salt?
A: Yes, Gardiner residents can come and get sand at the Public Works garage. We do not make salt available because it is quite expensive.
Q: Do I call Public Works if I'm having trouble with my water?
A: No, you should call the Gardiner Water District at 582-5500.
Q: Do I call Public Works if I have a question about my sewer bill?
A: No, you should call the Sewer Billing Clerk, at City Hall at 582-4460 or click here to send her an email.
Q: Where do I get rid of my brush and leaves?
A: Hatch Hill will accept leaves for free. There will be a modest charge for brush. Remember, you need to have a Hatch Hill permit to get in.
Q: How long will it take for the plow truck to get to my street?
A: It takes over 3 hours for a plow driver to complete his or her route, depending on the storm and how much snow falls. We plow all roads in Gardiner in a sequential order, you will not be forgotten.
