Garbage Information

Garbage collection during inclement weather?
If snow or other events prevent safe collection of garbage or recycling, the City will collect double on the next collection day or, if circumstances permit, later in the collection week. Please see, social media, or announcements regarding collection. The City will collect when safe to do so, as such, there is no credit given as all materials will be collected.

Collection on Holidays 2021/22

Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday, and since our sanitation drivers will be at home with their families, collection will be one day later than usual. If your normal collection day is Thursday, collection will happen on Friday. If your normal collection day is Friday, collection will happen on Saturday.

For the week of Christmas and New Year’s Day, both the holidays fall on a Saturday so there is no change to collection days this year for garbage/recycling.  Please put both garbage and recycling (if this is your week for recycling)  out on your normal pick up day.


Once a Month garbage customers: please put out your garbage and recycling (if this is your week for recycling) the week of January 3rd, 2022.
