Residential Collection

The City does not have an exclusive franchise with any waste hauler.  Any waste hauler operating within the City must enter into an agreement and sign a contract with the City.  The Public Works Department is responsible for waste hauler contract administration. Click here for the current Authorized Waste Hauler Contact List.

Automated Waste Collection

Your hauler will provide three types of carts for automated pick-up service:  Brown for trash, blue for recycling, and green for yard waste.  They are available in 96-gallon, 64-gallon, and 32-gallon sizes.  Contact your hauler for availability.

No waste containers shall be placed out for collection before 5 p.m. the day before the scheduled collection and must be brought in by 8 p.m. on the day of collection (or two hours after collection, whichever is later).  Carts should be positioned on the edge of the street, against the curb with the handle facing your house.

Please refer to the Residential Customer Subscription Information provided by your waste hauler for further information regarding services they provide, such as free roll-out service for seniors or persons with disabilities.

Green Waste Collection and Recycling Program

The City has a mandatory green waste collection and recycling program for all single-family residences.  Green waste makes up a significant percentage of the residential waste stream, and the program plays an important role in diverting waste from our landfills.  Green waste in plastic bags cannot be recycled, since the plastic contaminates the loads. 

Seasonal Green Waste Collection 

Additionally, seasonal green waste collection is provided up to twice a year on dates set by the City.  Unlimited amounts of green waste will be collected by your waste hauler on these dates.

Bulky Waste / Electronic Waste / Green Waste Collection EVENTS

The City schedules two Bulky Waste events per year, in May and November.  Unlimited amounts of bulky waste, electronic waste, and green waste will be collected by your waste hauler on these dates.  

Bulky Waste / Electronic Waste Collection SERVICES

Your waste hauler will also provide two Bulky Waste/Electronic Waste pick-ups per 12-month period, upon request.  Unlimited amounts of bulky waste and electronic waste will be collected by your waste hauler as part of this service.

Bulky Waste includes furniture (such as chairs, sofas, mattresses, box springs, carpets and rugs); appliances (including ovens/ranges, washers, dryers, water heaters, dishwashers, plumbing, and small household appliances); electronic waste (see below); tree branches; scrap wood; and up to 2 tires (auto or light truck, with or without rims). 

Electronic Waste (E-Waste) items are banned from disposal and include such items as cathode ray tubes (old TV and computer monitors), LCD and plasma screens, computers, telephones, answering machines, radios, stereo equipment, tape players/recorders, phonographs, and calculators.
