Basics About Curbside Recycling Collection

Curbside recycling is collected every other Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

Do NOT place recyclables in any kind of plastic bag and then place them in your green cart. Recyclables must be loose in the cart for collection.

Have your cart at the curb before 7AM with the wheels secure against the curb or along the street facing your residence if your street does not have a curb.

Cart lid must be completely closed or your cart will be tagged and not collected.

Recycle cart must be placed 5 feet away from surrounding obstacles on ALL sides.

Curbside Recycling is collected every other week on your designated day. Your designated day can be found at the bottom of the Environmental Services main page.

Additional carts are available upon request for $5 per month and require a one year commitment.

Important Things to Remember About Curbside Recycling

Make sure recyclable containers are free of food residue and liquid containers are empty.

Newspaper and cardboard recyclables must be clean and dry to be accepted in the program.

It is helpful to flatten bulky recyclables like boxes and jugs to save room in your recycle cart.

You may take large recyclables that will not fit in your cart to the Waste Management Recycle Center.

You must have proof of residence in the form of a water bill and identification card with you when you arrive to drop off recyclables at the Waste Management Recycle Center.

Basics About the Waiver Program

Residents who are disabled and are unable to move their city issued recycle cart to their curbside may be eligible for the Waiver Program.


There must be no other resident living within the household who is able to move the city issued recycle cart to the curbside.

Residents eligible for this program must leave the cart in a designated area that is agreed upon after a site visit is made by the Solid Waste Manager.

Arrangements to participate in the Waiver Program may be made by calling the Solid Waste Division.
