Garbage & Recycling

Garbage and recycling carts need to be out no later than 5:00AM the day of collection. Drivers will not go back to collect if this deadline is missed. Lids on all carts need to be closed with cart handle facing the house. New home constructions will need to call the Public Works Department to have garbage and recycling services set up. If you have extra garbage bags that do not fit in your grab age cart, there are $1 overflow sticker you can purchase at the Public Works Office during regular business hours.  After certain holidays, two overflow bags will be allowed without stickers.
