Extra Trash Collection the week following Christmas

The Solid Waste Dept. will accommodate customers with additional garbage from the Christmas holiday by offering extra trash collection Monday, Dec. 26 through Friday, Dec. 30, 2016.

Residents are asked to put extra holiday trash in plastic garbage bags or standard trash cans no larger than 45 gallons by 7 a.m. on their normal yard waste collection day.

If your trash and yard waste is normally collected on the same day, please place any additional Christmas trash at least 5 feet from your City-issued trash cart.

Place carts in front of the curb/gutter and/or street with the wheels/handle facing the residence. Cart lids must be completely closed. Carts must have a 5 ft. clearance between all City issued carts and any additional trash cans or other obstacles.

Yard Waste, Brush & Bulky Item Collection

PLEASE NOTE: The Solid Waste Dept. will temporarily halt yard waste and brush collection from Monday, Dec. 26 through Thursday, Dec. 30, 2016 to accommodate residents with additional garbage from the Christmas holiday. Yard waste and brush collection will resume on Monday, Jan. 2, 2017.

Christmas Tree Collection

Live Christmas trees will be collected as yard waste beginning on Monday, Jan. 2, 2017. Only live trees will be collected. Please make sure that all decorations and metal or wood stands are removed prior to setting it out for collection. Flocked trees (covered with fake snow) will not be collected, as these cannot be processed into compost.
