Refuse & Trash Service
Pick up of trash in the green carts are Monday/Tuesday and Wednesday/Thursday. Carts should not be left at the street after pickup.  Please return your cart to the yard at the end of your collection day.  Here's the City's policy for Garbage Collection Rules

Yard & Garden Waste
Sanitation picks up yard and garden waste such as leaves, limbs, and cuttings. When putting trash out for pickup, it is important not to mix items together.  Please help us by separating your yard debris from metal, paper, lumber and other items that are put at the curb.  See the ordinance section below for the preparation of yard and garden wastes.  

Sec. 11-37. - Preparation of yard and garden wastes.

(a)  The amount of yard and garden wastes placed for collection shall not exceed an amount contained within an area four (4) fee wide by twelve (12) feet by six (6) feet high or seven (7) cubic yards.  Piles of yard and garden wastes exceeding four (4) feet in width or exceeding twelve (12) feet shall obligate the owner or occupant to pay such special pickup fee.  In no case shall leaves and grass clippings be placed in the same pile for collection with bulky yard and garden wastes.

(b)  No more than one prescribed amount of bulky yard or garden wastes shall be placed for collection.

(c)  In no case shall any yard and garden wastes be placed for collection within ten (10)  feet of any pole connected by wires conducting electricity or guy wires connected to such pole.

(d)  In case of leaves and pine straw the requirements enumerated in  (a) and (b) of section 11-37 shall not apply.
