Residential Collection

Residential Garbage & Trash Collection

All residential garbage must be placed out by 7 am on the day of service (collection schedule). The Solid Waste Division provides the following residential collection services:
  • Once per week garbage collection

Bulk Trash Collection

Heavy trash is collected every two weeks and the service is limited to single-family residential customers. Heavy trash from any other entity must be transported to the landfill.

Heavy trash includes:
  • Large yard waste/vegetation (limbs and branches up to four feet long or cut to four foot lengths)
  • Tree trunks larger than 12 inches in diameter must be cut to a maximum two foot length
  • Furniture and mattresses
  • Appliances and miscellaneous heavy debris
  • A maximum of four tires per year
Heavy trash is not collected by City crews from the following:
  • Businesses
  • Churches
  • Construction sites
  • Vacant lots

Tips for the Best Collection Service

  • Garbage containers must be placed curb side by 7 am on collection day and removed from the curb by 8 pm on the same day. Residents should not leave containers at the curb overnight following collection day.
  • All garbage other than heavy trash items (old furniture, household furnishings, yard waste, etc.) must be placed inside your 96-gallon container for pick-up. Waste that is outside the container will not be collected, and could result in a ticket and fine.
  • Items which could be reused should be donated to charity or other organizations whenever possible.
  • We suggest that you don't place odor-producing garbage, such as seafood waste, meats and old foods, in your 96-gallon container before collection day. If possible, refrigerate or freeze these items, then place in the container on collection day.
