Household trash is collected Monday through Friday. Each residence will have its normal trash picked up once a week. The day on which this occurs varies based on the location of the property. In order to ensure the trash is collected, all residents should have their containers placed by the curb no later than 6 a.m. on the day of their scheduled pick-up. Containers should be placed within two feet of the road edge, with the wheels facing toward the house on the opposite side of the driveway from the mailbox, and at least four feet from poles, lamp posts, vehicles, or other obstructions.
Yard Waste/Bulk Item Service
Yard waste and debris are picked up twice a month. The day of the yard waste pick-up service is based on resident’s scheduled weekly trash collection day.
Yard Waste Collection Policies
The amount of yard waste can not exceed a total of four cubic yards per month per residence. (Please put in stacks of one cubic yard, i.e. 3' wide by 3' long by 3' high maximum) All small yard waste such as leaves and grass must be placed in plastic bags prior to pick-up. Larger yard waste such as tree limbs must not exceed four feet long, six inches in diameter, or 40 pounds.
