Solid Waste & Recycling Collection Program
Business in the city should arrange collection service with the vendor of their choice. The program offers residents unlimited curbside collection of solid waste and recyclables, with few exceptions, such as construction debris and hazardous waste. The following information is offered to help define the program and assist residents in preparing materials for collection.
Solid waste and recyclables are collected on the same day for each street, Monday through Thursday. Find your collection day here.
