  • The city contracts with Republic Services for trash services.
  • The city's contract requires that rear yard pick-up of kitchen trash be placed in a container.
  • The container must have a lid and handles and be limited to 50 pounds.
  • Republic Services offers a rental program for a small monthly fee offering a 90-gallon container to hold trash.

Additional Services

Disabled services are available for residents who are physically unable to push their trash cart to the curb. To qualify for this assistance program residents must:
  • Provide a doctor's note confirming the condition and forward to Republic Services annually.
  • Confirm that there is no one else in the household that is capable of bringing trash to the curb.
This program is for trash removal only. Recycling and yard waste must be brought to the curb for collection.
