Do you need someone to take care of your trash, recycling or yard waste needs? You can sign up for these services through the options listed here.
Here's what you'll need to get started:
A free service with two cart sizes to choose from. The more you recycle the less you pay service.
A pay per collection service. We offer three different cart sizes (option below). You only pay when you use the cart. Keep in mind a smaller cart will work if you recycle often. You'll also want to keep a positive account balance.
If the cart you use for trash service is left at the curb it may be tipped and charged, regardless of the account balance.
EFFECTIVE July 1st 2020 THERE WILL BE A TIP FEE INCREASE TO OUR PAYT REFUSE PROGRAM, NEW PRICES ARE LISTED BELOW
The season starts in early April and ends the second Saturday in December. Your curbside collection is the same day as your waste collection. We offer several options for curbside collection.
