Public Works


Place your trash at the curb no later than 6 a.m. on the day of pickup, but no earlier than the evening before pickup.

Metal & E-Waste

These items will be picked up on Friday during the first full week of each month (a week that contains Monday through Friday). You must call us to let us know that you’ll be putting the items out.

Bulk Trash Collection

Bulk trash is collected on your regular trash day during the first full week of each month (a week that contains Monday through Friday). If your regular trash collection is delayed one day because of a holiday, your bulk trash will be picked up on that day as well. 

Up to three bulk trash items, or up to 8 trash bags, may be placed next to your regular trash.

Note: There is no bulk pickup in December.
