Trash & Recycling

Trash Collection
 Trash collection is privatized through a bidding process and contracts with a private firm to provide collection services.  Residential pick up is scheduled one time per week.  The trash collection provider issues two large totes in which to place your trash for hauling.  Trash must be placed inside the totes for pick up.
