During the month of May, when single family and multi-family residents call in for one bulk item collection it will not count against their three free collections per year. Also, the bulk items we collect curbside will be diverted through Goodwill Industries for potential reuse or recycling before going to the landfill.

Residential Cart Service

All residents are provided carts - gray for trash, blue for recycling and green for yard waste collections to simplify recycling efforts. Automated carts come in 35-, 64-, and 96-gallon sizes to accomodate you family's needs. Standard service includes one 35-gallon waste cart, up to three recycling carts, and up to two green waste carts. Recycling carts and green waste carts are available in all three sizes at no additional cost.

Residents may choose to increase their waste cart to a 64- or 96-gallon cart for an additional fee. Your monthly service rate is based on the amount of waste generated. Residents who generate less benefit from a reduced monthly rate.
