Hours of collection are between 5 a.m. and 6 p.m. Please place your trash and recycling out the night before your collection day.

You may call our offices to schedule a curbside collection of large household items such as water heaters, furniture and appliances. This service is offered at no charge (except for tires and Freon certification) up to 6 times per calendar year. Please, no construction debris, tear down items, commercial waste, landscaping, or other items that may otherwise require temporary bin service


Trash and recycling are collected on all holidays except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's day. Your trash and recycling will be collected one day later after each of these holidays. For example, if the holiday falls on Thursday and your trash day is Thursday, your trash and recycling will be collected on Friday and Friday's trash and recycling will be collected on Saturday.
