Trash Collection Policy

On Collection Day, residents must place their garbage cans out by 6 a.m. on their collection day. Make sure that your cans are collected quickly by following these tips:

  • Cans must be placed at least three feet from any obstruction such as mailboxes, cars, poles, etc. Please leave at least one foot of space between the cans.
  • Cans will be serviced on the same day, but not necessarily at the same time.
  • The lids must be closed. No excess garbage will be collected without prior arrangements with your service provider.
  • Neither can may exceed 100 pounds.
  • Place cans on the asphalt portions of the street, next to the curb. Do not block the sidewalk. If you have alley pickup, put both cans in the alley.
  • Place cans with the handle toward your home.

For more information on garbage or recycling programs, contact the Solid Waste Division.
