Trash means solid waste (excluding ashes), consisting of both combustible and noncombustible waste materials. Combustible trash includes paper, rags, cartons, wood, wood shavings, furniture, rubber, plastics, and brush; noncombustible trash includes glass, crockery, tin cans, aluminum cans, metal and similar materials that will not burn at ordinary incinerator temperatures. The term does not include grass clippings or leaves.
Residents may take their leaves, brush, yard waste and limbs to the Compost Center behind Fire Station # 2 on Memorial Plaza or may set them out for once a month collection by the City. You can look up your collection days here. Yard waste and leaves must be bagged in approved paper lawn bags readily available at local retailers and left at the site, bag and all. If the yard waste or leaves is in plastic bags, the resident is responsible for dumping the contents on site and removing the plastic bags from the premises.
Tree limbs cut to 4-foot lengths or shorter are collected on a monthly basis. There is no need to call in for a tree limb pick up because the brush collection truck crews survey the city by zones and collect tree limbs as they are found. Solid waste crews will provide a list of tree limbs/brush locations for collection by the brush truck operator. Smaller tree limb piles may be collected by the solid waste crews when they complete their regular routes; however, larger piles must be collected by the brush truck operator. Storm debris and heavy trimming associated with the spring can sometimes results in collection delays of up to 30 days.
Please have you items out at the curb by 7:00 a.m. the Monday of your week's collection. The crews will work through Friday clearing your zone of special pick up items.
