Team Sanitation


Our Sanitation Team can be seen in both the residential and business sector of our City collecting residential garbage, residential recycling, residential yard debris, and commercial garbage and recycling.  We navigate the entire city limits every week collecting and transporting the City’s refuse and recycling.


Weekly residents are asked to have their roll cart and recycling bin at the curb by 7:00 AM for collection.
