Residential Garbage

All single family residents will receive a black 96 gallon garbage cart which will be serviced (1) one time per week. Smaller 65 carts are available upon request. Please place all household garbage in your cart and place the cart at curbside on collection day. Other guidelines to follow:

  1. Place your black 96-gallon garbage cart for collection within three (3) feet of the street by 6:00 a.m. on the scheduled pick up days. It is important to always have the cart facing the street (i.e. the handles are located on the cart side closest to you residence).
  2. Each black 96-gallon garbage cart is equipped with an easy open and close lid and wheels for easy movement to the curb.
  3. All garbage items placed in the carts should not extend above the rim of the cart.
  4. Garbage should only be placed in carts, as the trucks servings your waste are automated and cannot service alternative containers.
  5. Mirrors, glass table tops, window panes, plateglass, etc., will not be picked up unless they are properly and safely placed in a rigid container.
  6. Used oil, paints, insecticides, chemicals, automotive parts, batteries and tires.
  7. Medical waste including hypodermic needles and syringes and hazardous waste will not be collected. For further disposal information please visit
