General Waste Removal Helpful Hints:
Always place trash and recycle out the evening before the pickup day (after 6 p.m.)
Containers for household waste cannot exceed 32 gallons or weigh more than 50 pounds each.
Sprinkle a little household vinegar in the bag before you tie it shut and place it at the curb for pickup to deter animals from getting into trash bags.
DO NOT place hazardous waste of any type, such as insecticides, pesticides, construction and building materials, rocks, stones, concrete, car parts or similar materials as part of your weekly waste removal services.
Please adhere to the limit of 6 bags per household. Any extra cans or bags are an additional charge that must be prescheduled and prepaid prior to pick up by calling ahead.
