Talking Trash



The Department of Public Works, Solid Waste Division is responsible for all residential trash, residential recycling, and residential yard debris; as well as commercial trash, commercial recycling, and commercial debris removal. Collection services run year-round and on every major holiday with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, unless otherwise noted.  When a scheduled pick-up day falls on that holiday, the collection will usually occur on the next calendar day.  Any changes to the pick-up schedule in these cases will be announced here, or on the Home page of the website. 

The Solid Waste Division promotes a green lifestyle.  Throughout the year, we offer many city-wide programs and nationally recognized campaigns in which residents, business owners and visitors can participate.

Waste Audits can be done for diversion tactics, on residential and commercial garbage, along with offering a variety of internal recycling programs.  Additionally, we also have a city ordinance requiring the use of an approved frachise hauler when removing construction and demolition debris. Click to view our Construction and Demolition Collection Policies.
