Trash collection

Republic Services, a Division of Allied Waste Inc. handles the city’s refuse collection, and by contract with Allied Waste we utilize the “cart ” system of collection. Blue carts are for regular garbage and green carts are for loose, bulk recyclables. Carts should be placed within 3 feet of curb, with arrows facing the street and at least 3 feet apart. Bulk items are picked up on the 4th full work week of each month.

All grass clippings and other yard waste should be placed in brown paper yard waste bags and placed next to the recycling cart. Brush and small tree trimmings must be cut, bundled and securely tied, not exceed 4 feet in length or 40 lbs. in weight, and be placed next to the recycling cart.

Please have all cart containers out for pickup by 6:00am. When a holiday falls on or before your regular pickup day, your pickup will be the next business day. The holidays that affect collection are:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Customer inquiries and complaints should be directed to Republic Services Customer Service first, as they are aware of any adjustments to each route’s pickup or other special circumstances.
