Residential garbage is collected once per week from green, 96-gallon, City-provided wheeled carts. Upon request, a smaller, 48-gallon cart is usually available. The monthly rate is the same for either size.
For those would like an additional cart for weekly collection, a second cart can be requested for a fee and additional monthly cost.
To ensure collection of your garbage, please follow these rules:
Bag all garbage!
- Place closed plastic bags of garbage in your cart; don't throw in small, loose items. Bagging garbage prevents odors and reduces windblown litter upon collection. Residents are responsible for cleaning their cart.
Place your cart at the curb no earlier than 8:00 pm on the night before collection.
Place your cart at the curb no later than 6:30 am on the day of collection.
Keep your cart five feet away from any obstacles, including your mailbox or vehicle parked in the street.
The lid must close for collection. Overloaded carts will receive a violation tag.
Report it - Let us know if a cart is lost or needs repair.
