City Information & Forms



Thank you for recycling. Please remember NO plastic bags to hold newspapers. Plastic jams the rollers in the recycling centers; it is OK if the newspapers get wet out in the rain, they are still recyclable. Also, no styrofoam (egg cartons, meat trays, etc.) is accepted in our recycling.

Garbage is picked up every Tuesday unless Tuesday is a holiday or follows a holiday. Garbage can be set out to the road after 12:00 on Mondays.
