Trash Collection

Residents, place all items at your front curb by 7:00 a.m. for service to be completed by 8:00 p.m.

Please position your trash cart with its handles toward the street.

A maximum of five additional sealed trash bags will be collected if set beside the cart.

To avoid injury, 95-gallon carts should not contain more than 40 lbs. of materials.  Trash bags set beside the cart should weigh no more than 40 lbs. each.

Recycling Services

Place your 95-gallon recycle cart at your pickup location by 7:00 a.m. with handles toward the street.  All recyclables must be placed inside the 95-gallon recycle cart.

Roll out the cart when full (a 40 pound maximum).  Collection day is the same day as your trash day.

If you have extra recyclables that do not fit inside the 95-gallon cart, place items in cardboard boxes, brown Kraft bags or blue bags and place them next to your recycle cart.

Please separate recyclables and trash by 10 feet.
