Garbage, recycling, and yard waste are normally collected on the same day of the week (Tuesday through Friday).
- Garbage is collected weekly.
- Recycling and yard waste are picked up every other week.
- Change Effective July 5: Recycling and yard waste pickup will alternate weeks. Example: Tuesday is my collection day. One Tuesday is garbage and recycling day; the next Tuesday is garbage and yard waste day. This is to limit the number of carts at the curb to no more than two at a time.
