Refuse & Recycling


Refuse Collection Services

Residential and Commercial trash/recycling collection is provided through a contract with Burrtec Waste Services. Refuse service is billed quarterly (every three months). Residential refuse collection is automated and provided once a week. Collection days are by zone. Burrtec provides all residential customers with containers (40 gallons, 60 gallons or 90 gallons). Rates vary based on the size of barrel selected. Containers must be placed in alleys or parkways by 7am on pickup day and removed before 8am on the following day. Commercial Refuse Bins vary in price depending on size and frequency of pick up.

Refuse Collection Holiday Schedule Policy

When the holiday falls on a weekday other than a Monday, collections for the remainder of the week will be delayed by one day. When a company observed holiday falls on a Monday, there will be no service delay.
