Garbage is collected every other week.
On the morning of collection, set your garbage out between 5 and 7:30 a.m. and be sure not to overload your garbage can—the lid should close completely. And before you put an item in the garbage, check to see if it can be recycled or put in your Green Can.

IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect our waste collection staff:
- ensure that all personal hygiene products, used tissues, cleaning cloths, face masks, gloves, and similar items are disposed of in garbage bags.
- securely tie garbage bags. Un-bagged or loose items will not be collected.
- sort materials correctly. Crews are taking extra precautions and will not be sorting through garbage or recycling at the curb.
