There are separate trucks for garbage, recycling, and yard waste, each on a different schedule. As a result, these materials may be picked up at different times during the day. Items for collection may be placed at the curb after 7:00 PM the day before your scheduled pick up. Residents must remove containers from the curb by 7:00 PM on the day of collection.

Household Hazardous Waste
Household products that are flammable, toxic, corrosive, or reactive can pose a harmful threat or damage the environment when disposed of improperly. Items such as oil-based paint, pesticides, poisons, cleaning solvents, household batteries, tainted gasoline, used oil, and other automobile fluids are considered household hazardous waste, and must not be included with your refuse.
- Household batteries can be recycled by putting them in a closed plastic ziptop bag and then placing them on the top of the recycling cart on collection day.
- Modern latex paint is not considered hazardous for the environment and can be placed in your regular garbage, once it has been solidified. If there is just a small amount of paint remaining in the can, take the lid off and let the paint evaporate outside. For fuller cans, stir in an absorbent, such as kitty litter, shredded newspaper, or a commercial product such as Oil-Dry, leave the lids off and place the solidified cans in your garbage. Why does it have to be solidified? Because paint cans pop open in garbage trucks and the paint leaks out of the truck onto local streets. Empty, dry, paint cans and lids can be placed in your recycling bin.

Yard Waste Collection

It must be either in biodegradable Kraft bags, in cans no larger than 33 gallons marked for Yard Waste Only, or bundled. Each of these bags, cans or bundles must carry a Waste Management yard waste sticker.
- Tree and bush branches can be securely tied together into bundles for pick-up. Attach a Waste Management yard waste sticker to each bundle. Bundles cannot exceed 4′ in length, 2′ in diameter or weigh more than 50 pounds.
