Garbage collection is contracted to a private firm for both residential and commercial properties. Residential garbage is collected two times per week as per the schedule mailed to each household. Residents are encouraged to put the containers out on the scheduled day in front of their homes. Containers will be emptied beginning at 7:00 am and before 6:00 pm. Commercial waste is collected as per the agreement with the private waste hauler.
Bulk removal is scheduled for the third week of each month. Bulk items should be put in front of your residence beginning the Sunday of the third week and no later than Tuesday.
