Refuse Collection
All trash must be bagged for the safety of our employees and our community. This does not apply to recycling. Recycling materials can remain loose in recycling containers. All trash should be placed in bags that are secured (tied) and then placed in trash containers. Please do not place loose garbage directly in trash containers because it will not be collected. This is for the protection of our workers; we do not want them coming in contact with loose waste products, especially during the COVID-19 outbreak. During the outbreak, it would also be appreciated by our employees if waste receptacles were sanitized with a disinfectant after placing at the curb

Curbside Bulk Item Pick-up
