Trash is considered all household refuse other than recyclables, bundled brush or unacceptable waste.
Residents provide their own containers for trash. All trash must be in plastic bags or garbage cans/carts weighing no more than 35 pounds when full. Households are limited to 10 bags or four cans/carts per collection. Blue carts provided by the City are for recycling only.
Trash is collected twice a week beginning at 7 a.m.
If your trash collection day falls on an observed holiday, collection will resume on the next regularly scheduled day. Observed holidays include New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
Bulky items are collected on your regular garbage collection days. Place these items on the curb:
- Appliances (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners or other appliances containing coolants must contain written or visual evidence that the chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) have been removed by a certified, authorized and licensed technician)
Brush, limbs, yard debris, and twigs will be collected if tied in bundles no more than 4 feet in length, and weighing approximately 50 pounds or less each and no larger than 1 cubic yard (need help visualizing 1 cubic yard?).
