Our mission is simple: Remove your waste, retain your trust.

Here’s how we fulfill that mission every day.

Collection Day: Thursday

Refuse must be placed in bags or containers that are no greater than 35 gallons in size and weigh no more than 50 pounds. Containers should have handles on them. Each resident now has a 95-gallon cart for trash with a blue lid.

Bulky Item Pick-up

One bulk item will be allowed per week. Bulk items include:

  • Chairs
  • Couches
  • Mattresses
  • Furniture pieces

As a safety precaution, please remove the doors from refrigerators and freezers.

Carpet must be cut and rolled into 4-foot lengths. Each roll must not weigh more than 50 pounds. Rolled carpeting and padding must be secured with tape or string.

Residents may place up to four tires at curbside per collection day.
