 IMPORTANT TRASH INFORMATION

Trash is required to be stored in  watertight, rodent-proof barrels with tight fitting covers per City Ordinance Section 14.03. The City does not provide trash barrels. They may be purchased many retailers/ hardware stores. The maximum size of each barrel is 32 gallons and may not weigh more than 40 pounds. This rule is rigorously enforced for safety and health reasons. At this time there is a 5 Barrel Limit for TRASH per paid Family Unit/Business. Effective May 14, 2018, there will be a 2 Barrel Limit for Trash. We are currently finalizing an OVERTHROW BAG option. We will update the website when we have more information. You may also put out ONE Bulk item per week- example: One mattress, or One table, or One couch, or One box spring, etc…
