Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the clean-up has been postponed. When a new date has been scheduled it will be publicized.
All types of trash will be picked up on your regular trash route day EXCEPT tires or household hazardous waste. Tree limbs must be cut no longer than 8 feet long. Fireplace ash and animal feces must be in plastic bags, which are tied closed.
(Yard waste pick up will begin on April 15th, and must be in a solid container – not in plastic bags.)
The maximum limit the City will pick up at each residence is 1 load of household items and 1 load of tree limbs. Lathe and plaster must be in a solid, dumpable container.
SPECIAL NOTE: TRASH MUST BE SEPARATED in piles, i.e., tree limbs from metals, etc. since items are disposed of in different locations at the landfill. Mattresses, furniture and E-waste (computers, microwaves, stereos, TV’s, DVD’s, VCR’s) must be separate from other trash. Tires and hazardous waste (paint, motor oil, batteries, pesticides, poisons,
caustic chemicals, etc.) WILL NOT be picked up by the City.
NOTE: Twigs & limbs are only picked up on clean-up days and must be in a separate pile. Yard waste will be picked up on Wednesday afternoons & Thursdays, beginning April 15th. Recyclables are picked up on Fridays.
