Automated Trash Collection

Automated trash collection is the City-wide adoption of rolling trash and recycling carts that can be emptied by specialized equipment that is both safer for residents and our community, as well as more efficient. We began this service in July of 2021 by delivering a 64-gallon trash and recycling cart to each residence at no cost. These containers took place of anything previously being used.

  • Trash is picked up every Monday.
  • Waste Management has provided each residence with 1-64 gallon trash cart.
    • If enough trash is generated you may obtain a second cart at no additional charge.
      • Any additional carts are available for $1 per month. Call WM to have that set up.
    • Please place the cart in the proper spot for collection.
      • If you have questions regarding placement please contact WM or City Hall.
    • Please place the cart, with the wheels of the cart towards the house, at the curb at least 3 feet from all objects, including your mailbox, car or trees.
    • All items should be placed inside the WM cart. Loose items on the ground are not permitted.
  • You will receive a monthly charge for trash collection on your City utility bill.
