IMPORTANT TRASH REMINDER: The maximum size of bags or barrels of Trash is 35 gallons and may not weigh more than 40 pounds. This rule is rigorously enforced for safety and health reasons. There is a combined 5 bag and/or barrel limit for TRASH per paid Family Unit/Business.  Trash and Recycling must be out by 7:00 am on your trash day.  This includes yard waste on weeks where there is leaf collection.

Please encourage your friends and neighbors to recycle, thus diverting trash from landfills to other uses, saving money and helping preserve the environment by reducing pollution and saving energy. There is NO LIMIT to the amount of RECYCLING you may put out each week. Click the Recycling Bin link on the left for Bin availability and pricing information.
