SOLID WASTE & RECYCLINGTrash & Recyclables Collection Program

Residential Service

Residents receive one time per week collection of trash, recyclables and green waste. Residential service is mandatory and based on single-family home waste generation. Service fees are billed bi-monthly, two months in advance. Low volume trash generators can benefit from a smaller 15 gallon trash barrel and a reduced solid waste and recycling bill. Trash, recycling, and green waste barrels are available for an additional monthly fee.

Collection Day

Please place barrels at curbside the night before or no later than 6:00 a.m. on the day of collection. Place your barrels near the corner of your driveway, in the street, at curbside with the handles facing your home. The barrels must be placed at least three feet away from any obstruction such as a vehicle, fence, lamp post, power pole or mail box and one foot between other barrels. Trash not at curbside at time of collection will be collected the following week. As a courtesy to your neighbor, promptly remove carts after service.

Your 15, 30 or 60 gallon TAN/BLACK barrel is for trash collection. Do not place trash in the blue recycling or green waste barrel; it will not be collected. If your barrel is damaged it will be repaired or replaced at no charge. Residents are responsible for those barrels damaged due to customer negligence or abuse.

DO NOT place the following materials in your barrels…

  • Hazardous Waste (products labeled toxic, poison, corrosive, flammable, or irritant)
  • Fluorescent Bulbs
  • Machinery
  • Paint
  • Hot Ashes
  • Pesticides
  • Oil
