Trash Services

Trash service is part of your utility services and is started at the time of application for utilities. Trash service is included in your monthly utility bill from the city.

Household Trash
Regular household trash is collected on Wednesdays and should be placed at your front curb by 7 a.m. for service between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. Trash must be placed out for collection in an approved trash container or in plastic trash bags.

A trash can must have a tight-fitting lid, a maximum capacity of 35 gallons, and weigh less than 50 pounds when full. Trash bags must be high-strength plastic and weigh less than 35 pounds when full. Please remember that trash cans and bags are lifted by people, not machines.
