• You will see a $2.86 charge for the program on your monthly utility bill.
If you are exempt from the City’s garbage pickup program, you will also be exempt from recycling.

• Please use the blue or green recycling bins for your recyclables.
If you do not have a bin you can pick one up at City Hall.

• Recyclables will be picked up every Friday. Please place your recycling bins in the same place you set your garbage for pickup.  Containers containing recyclable materials shall not weigh more than 50 pounds.
