Garbage Collection

Automated trash and recycling collection officially began, Monday, January 5th, 2015!

Safety Tips
Garbage haulers and collectors are people too! Please help them stay safe and healthy by learning about the safe disposal of potentially hazardous materials. Additionally, always be mindful of passing garbage and recycling trucks because collectors are sometimes on foot collecting your garbage and/or recyclables. 

Curbside Collection Rules:
  • ​Roll-cart handles must face house (away from curb). 
  • Keep your roll-cart at least two (2) feet away from each other and two (2) feet from other structures such as mailboxes, power poles, parked vehicles, etc.
  • Trash must always be bagged and recyclables should always be loose in the proper roll-carts.
  • Roll-carts should be placed as close to the curb as possible without protruding into the street. 
  • Do not place roll-carts behind parked cars or other obstructions because the automated arm is not able to reach behind trees, cars, or other objects.
