Trash & Recycling

Important Notice - Effective March 19, 2020

To ensure the health and safety of our community, the following changes are being made to residential trash collection:

  • Bagging trash: All trash must be secured plastic bags (not in boxes or other unsecured receptacles) before being placed out in trash cans for collection. Please make sure the bags are secured tightly to prevent the scattering of waste, and that no materials are loose in trash cans.

    This does not apply to recycling, please continue to place your recycle materials loosely in your recycling carts.

  • Suspension of bulk/brush and yard waste collection: Due to an expected increase in residential trash volumes, bulk and brush collections, including yard waste, are suspended.

Trash and recycling will remain on a regular collection schedule.
