Residential Garbage

There are 12 employees servicing more than 15,000 residential customers weekly collecting and transporting more than 35 tons of refuse daily to the county landfill.


Residential household garbage is picked up at the curbside for all residents inside the City limits.  This service is offered once every week and is collected on all holidays, with the exception of Christmas day, which will be collected on either the Saturday before or after Christmas day.  There is a monthly $10.00 charge for garbage, recycling and yard debris collection from the curb, which is reflected each month on your water bill. 


The City furnishes one 90 gallon roll-a-way cart for each resident.  If additional carts are needed; they must be purchased from the City.
