Recycling

NOTICE: Effective June 1, 2024, Waste Management will no longer be the vendor for recycle collections. The City has approved a bid from Town & Country Disposal (Waste Connections). As you are likely aware this is the same company that currently provides garbage pickup. There will be a day of the week change as it will be Wednesday pickup on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month. The current containers will need to be picked up by Waste Management and new containers will be delivered by Town & Country. Watch for additional information to come.

Recycling pick-up is the first and third Wednesday of each month. See the community calendar for specific dates. You may place all your clean and dry plastics, glass and metals loose into the same recycling container.
