    • All trash, recycling, brush and bulky collections are performed once per week on the same day. View the collection map.
    • The city is divided into four service areas, and collection will take place on either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday depending on where the resident lives.

    • Waste must be placed at curb by 7 a.m. on collection day and after 6 p.m. the night before collection.
