Yard Waste Recycling
Curbside pickup of yard waste on your normal day will only be available by utilizing the "Yard Waste" carts. These carts may be purchased from the city and will have a green lid clearly labeled "Yard Waste." The carts will hold considerably more compostable material, are easy to load, and can easily be wheeled around the yard for loading. Paper bags, green mesh bags and cans cannot be collected with the automated trash collection equipment.
Residents may continue to use paper bags or cans, but must take them to the compost bin at the transfer station. Neighbors may consider sharing a yard waste cart. Plastic bags are not biodegradable and can't be accepted.
Brush & Leaf Collection
Curbside leaf collection begins in late October and ends in late November, weather permitting. A map for leaf pick-ups can be downloaded here. Smaller quantities of brush and leaves can be included with your regular "Yard Waste" collection. Call 675-5496.
Special & Loader Pick-up
In an effort to keep the City streets clean and free of trash, all debris placed on City easement property will be picked up by the City. A $20.00 fee will be charged to the residence even if a special pick-up request has not been submitted.
Thursday is "City-Wide" Brush pick-up. A $20.00 fee will be assessed per load per pick-up of brush or bulky materials. Residents will not be charged for removal of brush from City trees damaged by storms.
Heavy or loose debris that must be collected with a front-end loader such as concrete, dirt, bricks, or sod will be picked up on Wednesdays at a cost of $50 per cubic yard with a minimum charge of $50. These materials CANNOT be accepted at the Transfer Station.
**Contractors are responsible for the removal and disposal of their debris and are not eligible for this service.
Automated Trash Collection
Each residence was provided a brown 95 gallon trash cart for household trash. Containers are identified with a serial number that is recorded as assigned to the residence. Apartments continue to utilize dumpster containers.
Residents wishing to continue curbside yard waste pick-up must purchase a special 95 gallon cart, with green lid marked "yard waste" from the city (see yard waste recycling). For info call 675-8470.

Residential Rubbish Collection Rules
Garbage should be wrapped in newspaper or placed in garbage bags to prevent refuse from freezing to carts in cold weather, keeping carts cleaner.
The occupant/property owner may be held responsible for litter existing on property in the City. Rubbish cannot be picked up on private property.
On collection day, please keep vehicles off the road especially on courts.
Paint cans and used oil will not be collected with regular rubbish. Please take these items to the recycling drop-off center. Unused latex paint may be allowed to harden by removing lid.
For the health and safety of all, do not dispose of needles or sharps in regular trash. They can be dropped off at the King Rd. fire station in designated containers.
Animal waste is to be bagged for pickup in trash cart.
