Solid Waste disposal
Our Solid Waste and Recycling System
Sometime ago, the City Council and Mayor looked into ways to better serve the waste collection needs and requirements of our community. With that in mind, a “pay as you throw” or blue bag system for refuse collection was established. This system offers residents a true “user-fee” based collection program and, at the same time, enhances the esthetics of the neighborhoods by doing away with unsightly garbage pails with various and sundry refuse containers being left at the curb before and after garbage collection. It was also thought that the western areas of the City would best be served by utilizing 96-gallon roll-out carts for their collection needs twice weekly at a prescribed monthly billing rate. Collection is provided two times per week with no service on Sunday or Christmas Day. Blue garbage bags should not weigh more than 40 lbs each. Solid waste and recycling material must be placed curbside prior to 7:00 AM.
