Organics recycling

The City picks up food scraps and other compostable items weekly. There is no extra cost to take part. Sign up to get started.

Holiday collection

Collection will not be impacted by the Presidents' Day holiday on Monday February 19, 2024. Please place your cart and up to two large items by 6 a.m. on your regularly scheduled pickup day. Even though collection will not be affected, Solid Waste & Recycling's office will be closed on Monday.

Protect our pollinators. Don't rake your leaves.

Pollinators nest in the broken stems of plants and overwinter in leaf piles. To protect our pollinators, please do rake any leaves or clean up your yard until temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees. Yard waste collection will not begin again until April 8, 2024.
