Curbside services include much more than your weekly trash (black cart) collection! Trash collection occurs weekly, recycling collection occurs every other week, yard debris collection occurs weekly, large/bulky items can be scheduled for pick-up as needed, and yard debris containers can be rented!
Trash and recycling are collected curbside in 95-gallon containers that may be purchased from the Public Works Waste Management Group.

Trash carts may be purchased from the Public Works Waste Management Group for $75.00 each to residents who receive City-provided curbside services. It is recommended that residents label carts with their address.
Recycling Carts (Blue Carts)
Recycling carts are provided free of charge to residents who receive City-provided curbside services. It is recommended that residents label carts with their address.
