Weekly trash pick-up and recycling
Residents can put all non-recyclable trash in their Big Blue rolling carts. Simply put your Big Blue cart with lid closed on at the curbside (not in the street) before 6 a.m. on your assigned pick-up day. You can find your pick-up day by looking at your water bill, or at our online calendar.
Little Blue Recycling
Use your Little Blue bin to recycle general household paper, plastics, glass and aluminum. Like your Big Blue, your Little Blue should be set out at the curbside no later than 6 a.m. on your assigned pick-up day. See our What to Recycle page for a complete list of items we can accept in your Little Blue bin. Please refer to the pick-up calendar to determine whether you have curbside recycling.
The City will retire Little Blue and change to a large cart recycling program beginning in July, 2018. New carts will start being delivered on February 26, 2018. See our Recycling Info page for program details.
Bulk waste, including carpets, furniture, appliances* general landscape waste and other specialized items, is picked up monthly. Make sure all bulk waste is placed on the curbside, no later than 6 a.m. on your scheduled monthly pick-up day. Crews make take up to three (3) days to get to the bulk waste, but any and all waste must be put on out the assigned day in order in order for it to be picked up.
*See Bulk Waste page for special instructions on items containing Freon and other coolants.
