Trash collection guidelines

Find your collection day

  • Place your container curbside no later than 7 a.m. on your scheduled collection day, or the night before.
  • Bag your trash to prevent wind-blown litter as we service it and to keep your container clean.
  • Please place your container at least five feet away from mailboxes, parked vehicles, low wires and limbs, and other obstructions to prevent service interruptions.
  • The arrows on your container lid should be facing the street when set out for collection.
  • At no time should surplus garbage or items be placed in front of, on top, or beside your container.

Prohibited items

Do not place these items in your trash container:

  • Construction debris, remodeling and demolition materials
  • Dirt, sod, brush or rock
  • Hot ashes or flammable materials such as oil, gas or paint
  • Furniture and appliances
  • Household chemicals and electronics
