Residential garbage is collected curbside on Monday through Thursday each week. Garbage containers (trash cans) must be watertight with tight fitting lids or tops, have at least two handles, hold not less than 15 gallons or more than 48 gallons, and not be fastened in such a manner that the containers may not be easily emptied. Drums or barrels cannot be used as garbage containers. Garbage shall be placed in plastic bags, and bags are required in all containers. No garbage can in excess of 48 gallons capacity or weighing over 40 pounds will be serviced. Volume limits per residential customer are two (2) 48-gallon trash containers weighing 40 pounds of less or five (5) trash bags. Excessive trash pickup at a residence can be charged an additional pickup fee at the discretion of the Sanitation Department.
Extra pickup of large items not picked up with regular garbage (appliances, furniture, wood, metal, and so forth) may be picked up for an additional fee. Extra pickups are only done on Friday mornings. Requests for extra pickups must be called in to the Sanitation Department, and items must be placed curbside prior to 6:00 a.m.
Residential garbage collection rates are set by city ordinance, and are subject to change. Please contact the Sanitation department for more information.
