Each eligible single family household will receive one 65 gallon cart for trash and one 95 gallon cart for recycling.  Two, three, and four family properties will receive one set of carts for each living unit.  Owners of these eligible properties are responsible for proper placement and removal of carts on collection days.  Owners must ensure that carts remain on property when home is sold or tenant departure.  

Residents may confirm their trash collection day and recycling week with the following street listing

Weather Delay
