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. It can be put in cans or bags, cans can not be bigger than 33 gallons or weigh more than 50 lbs. Yardwaste is picked up every Tuesday (unless a holiday or after a holiday) from the 1st Tuesday in April until the last Tuesday in November. Look to the Public Notice Tab, to see if Garbage & Recycling is going to be delayed a day or canceled due to weather.
