Curbside Pickup


All city households will receive the use of a sturdy, 96-gallon cart for their household garbage.

The cart can hold 10 garbage bags. This should be big enough to meet the needs even of large families. They roll easily, even when fully loaded.

Guidelines for Curbside Collection

Watch the Guidelines for Curbside Collection video or review the following:

  • Carts should be at the curb by 6 a.m. the day of collection and no earlier than 5 p.m. the day before. Remove them from the curb by 8 a.m. the next day.
  • Do not place cart behind parked cars or within three feet of trees and bushes or other carts.
  • Only the carts issued by the city can be used.
  • Place cart at the curb, not in the street.
  • The silver lift handle for the truck hoist should be facing the street. The hinge for the lid should be away from the street.
  • Use only the cart. Retain excess garbage for the next week’s collection.
