 Tips and Information about Automated Residential Garbage

  • Residents are required to use a City provided automated container for household garbage and recycling. Yard debris and bulky items can be placed independently at the curb, in 32 gallon personal containers, bags or manageable piles not to exceed 4 cubic yards overall (roughly 2 standard size refrigerators on their sides.)
  • Place all materials to the curb no earlier than 6:00 pm the night before collection, or at least by 6:30 am on the day of collection.
  • Containers should be removed from the curb by 7:00 am the day following collections.
  • Additional charges for bulky items, electronics, appliances and over-sized brush or yard debris may apply (Resolution no. 06-40). Please contact Solid Waste for disposal or special service options if you receive a courtesy notice.
  • Placement of materials in the public right-of-way (curb) is done so as a request for service and will be removed by the Solid Waste Division accordingly.
