Trash & Recycling

Waste Connections is the residential waste hauler for the City.  Click here for information on Waste Connections

Procedures & Requirements

Please be advised of the following waste collection procedures and requirements:

  • Because the start time for Waste Connections may vary from week to week, we recommend that you have all trash, recycle or yard waste at the curb on your scheduled collection day no later than 6:30 AM so you won’t be skipped. 
  • If your trash, recycle or yard waste is not at the curb on your scheduled collection day when the truck arrives, Waste Connections will not return that week. (Be advised that truck drivers take time-stamped photos when trash, recycle or yard waste is not at the curb.)
  • All trash items must be placed in a trash bag or trash container, not to exceed 50 pounds. (If you have bulky items, please contact Waste Connections directly to notify them of the items that will be placed at the curb so that they will have the proper manpower to lift items into trucks as needed.)
  • Please place all recycle items in the designated 22-gallon bin, 65-gallon toter, or 95-gallon toter.
  • Please place all yard waste items in compostable yard waste bags or trash cans utilized for yard waste. All tree limbs must be bundled in 4-foot long sections with a 6-inch diameter and placed at the curb on the designated pick-up day. No tree roots or dirt will be accepted.
  • For appliance pickup, please contact the waste hauler directly for removal of these items (prices indicated in the following table).

  • Solid waste and yard waste co-mingled
