mornings. Please have your garbage out by 6:00am. If a Holiday
falls on Tuesday, garbage pick up will be the following day.
Recycling: Glass should
not be placed in bins for recycling. Paper, plastic, tin and cardboard can be mixed. Large cardboard can
be set aside if it is too large for a recycle container. Please remember, even
the material is handled by machines there is a stage involving hand sorting.
Items should be rinsed and used tissues and other soiled items should be
discarded. A good rule of thumb is, if you wouldn't like to handle something
then you should not put it in the recycle bin.
YARD WASTE PICK UP is every Thursday morning during season. Grass trimmings, weeds, garden waste, and small tree branches will be picked up if properly bagged or bundled. Please put your waste in a bag or a box for easy pick up. If you can easily lift it, it is small enough for us to pick up. You will need to contact City Hall to have your name added to the list for pick up. There is a $25 charge if more then one trip has to be made to remove your yard waste. If in question, call City Hall to request Terry to check it before he picks it up.
