By local ordinance, all occupied properties are required to have weekly waste collection service. The cost of service is based on your choice of Backyard or Curbside collection and waste cart size, and includes unlimited recycling and organics service. Kitchen pails (1.5 gallon) are provided for household accumulation and transfer of food scraps to the organics cart. All carts and kitchen pails are provided by Republic Services. For worker safety, Backyard Service is limited to 35-gallon containers. Waste, recycling and organics carts in *20, 35, 65 and 95-gallon capacity are available for curbside collection. If you choose Curbside service, please set out all carts (garbage, recycling and organics) at the curb, or immediately behind the sidewalk, no later than 6:45 a.m. on collection day. Carts must face towards the street with wheels against the curb or gutter.
Place all recyclables together loose in blue recycling cart. If you need additional recycling carts, call our Customer Service Office at
800-320-8077. Recyclables will be picked up on the same day as your garbage and organics waste.
All materials and containers must be clean and free of food or other contamination. Materials must be bagged, boxed or tie-bundled. Loose materials not in cart, bags, boxes or tie bundles cannot be collected. Set out piles exceeding two cubic yards (approximately 3'x3'x4') will be collected as an On-Call Clean-up.
