Garbage Collection

Collection Map

Residents

Garbage is collected once a week for residents and is incorporated in an individual's property annual tax assessment. 

The City requires all garbage bags to be in a waste bin.  Waste Management provides one (1) bin per household.  Additional bins are available for purchase through the local hardware stores if necessary.  Not putting garbage bags in a waste bin may result in denial of pickup.  For more information, contact Waste Management.
