Residential Refuse and Recycling Collections
The City utilizes an automated refuse collection system meaning that the driver does not exit the vehicle when making the pick-up. Therefore, any refuse left on the side will not be collected.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO:
How Do I Recycle?
Recycling is easy. You no longer need to sort out recyclables...the City does it for you!
The City has developed an integrated approach to refuse collection services including trash, green waste and recycling. BLACK containers are for all household refuse including recyclables and GREEN containers for yard clippings only. The mixed waste is sent to a material recovery facility where the recyclables are sorted and the yard clippings are sent to a composting facility.
This new system has enabled to City to meet and exceed a state mandated 50% diversion of waste from landfills. In 2011, the City's overall diversion rate was 78%.
