Trash & Recycling

Residents are provided with 96-gallon trash and recycling carts. Carts are also provided to businesses that receive regular trash service (not dumpsters).

Trash is picked up once a week. Recycling is picked up every other week. Carts must be placed curbside by 8:00 a.m. on pickup days with the wheels against the curb; if there is no curb, please place the wheels on the edge of the pavement. Carts should be placed at least four feet away from each other to allow access for servicing. 

If you believe your trash or recycling was missed, please contact the Public Works office at 361.777.4601.
