News and Updates

Residential bulky waste collection every other week, starting July 5, 2016.

Beginning July 5, place bulky waste out for collection on the same day as recycling.

Bulky Waste includes all items that cannot fit inside curbside carts such as furniture, tires, equipment, appliances (white goods), and e-waste (anything with a circuit board, especially TVs and computers). 

  • Better use of tax dollars.  More efficient collection, reduced fuel consumption, and improved air quality. 
  • Your collection day will not change.  Recycling and bulky waste will be collected every other week according to the established blue/green zone schedule. Weekly garbage and yard waste collection continues unchanged.
