The Solid Waste Division is responsible for the collection of household refuse, yard debris (grass clippings, leaves, limbs up to 12” in diameter and no more than 6’ in length), recyclable items and commercial refuse. Refuse is collected on a weekly basis while recyclables and yard debris are collected biweekly. White Goods/Bulky Items are removed free-of-charge on Wednesdays by appointment only.
Refuse pickup is combined with your water and sewer bill. To open a new account, you must come to the City Hall Addition in person. You must bring a photo ID, copy of your lease or option to buy and a $100 deposit.
Refuse collection: $25.00 flat rate per month
