Day and Time of Collection

Recycling and rubbish materials will be picked up on the same day each week, except when a holiday falls on or before your regular pick-up day. Then your recycling and rubbish materials will be collected 1 day later. Please place your rubbish and recycling at the tree lawn by 6 a.m. on your collection day, or preferably the night before, after 6 p.m. Make sure rubbish and recycling are on opposite sides of your driveway. If you are unsure of your regular collection day, please check the Recycling and Rubbish Routes to find out. 

Do not place rubbish and recycling materials out sooner than 6 p.m. the night before your regular collection day. City code 951.02 prohibits this. All containers must be removed from the tree lawn no later than 24 hours after collection. Your trash bags and containers must be stored in a manner that they cannot be seen from the street.

  • New Year's Day 1/1/18 - 1 day delay for all routes
