Curbside Recycling Program
How it Works
The container must be used for acceptable recyclable materials (see list). Recyclables can be co-mingled or mixed together in one container
Your recyclables will be picked up every other week on the same day as your trash!
Please have your cans out to the curb by 6:00 am or the night before. Remember, routes change from time to time and your container(s) may be some of the first collected that day. By combining recycling collection with the collection of regular garbage pickup, times may be altered.
Place the container in the street with the wheels against the curb or within 2 feet of the blacktop if no curb exists, with the front of the container facing the street. Containers must be placed 4 feet apart and 8 feet from mailboxes, poles, fences, trees, or parked vehicles for easy access. Do not plave cans under low trees or other overhead obstructions.
The container has an inventory number which is assigned to each household. Customers are responsible for the containers delivered to their address. The container must remain on your property and be properly cared for. If containers are lost or stolen, the homeowner will be charged for a replacement container ($50).
Just like the regular garbage pickup, there is no pickup of recyclables on July 4, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's Day. If your pickup day falls on one of these holidays, it will be picked up the next day. For those collected on the remaining days of a holiday week, pleace place your container out on your regular day, then be patient. Garbage collection will be back on schedule as soon as possible.
Additional recycling containers are available for an additional $3.00 per month per container.
Note: If you have more than one regular garbage container (black) it is recommended that you keep the extra container until you determine exactly what your garbage service needs will be. This will save the city time and money in re-delivering garbage containers.
