Helpful Hints for Successful Trash Collection

  • Regular collection schedule is Monday through Friday, with the exception of major holidays that fall during the week (see Holiday Schedule)
  • Containers must be placed at the point of pick up by 7:00 a.m. on your trash collection day
  • Containers must be placed three feet away from any object or other container
  • Place containers with the serial number facing the street or alley
  • All refuse, brush, and yard waste must be placed inside the toter container, with the lid closed - if the lid can't close, spillage may occur
  • Keep limbs and brush to a maximum of 12 inches in length
  • Ashes must be cold and stored in plastic bags - hot ashes can damage containers and equipment
  • Solid Waste operators will leave notices on containers to assist you when problems arise
  • Toter containers are the property of the Solid Waste Department and assigned to specific addresses.
