Solid Waste and Recycling


The normal collection date is Tuesday each week, with the exceptions below for holidays.  Place your carts curbside before 6am on the collection date, and no more than 24 hours prior to pickup, and remove the carts within 24 hours of pickup.

Leave 5 to 6 feet between carts to allow equipment to pick up and deposit the carts with less risk of tipping over or damage.  Placing the carts on opposite sides of the driveway is recommended.

If a holiday falls on a Monday or Tuesday, collection will be held Wednesday.
If a holiday falls Wednesday through Sunday, collection remains on Tuesday.
