2016-2017 Recycling & Bulk Waste Schedule - Starts July 2016!
The new 2016-2017 Recycling & Bulk Service Calendar is now available! This calendar identifies the weeks of the month reserved for yard waste pick-up, recycling pick-up, and bulk pick-up.
Bulk Pick-Up Schedule Change
In order to improve on collection efficiency and service, the bulk pick-up schedule has been adjusted to quarterly pick-up. Curb-side bulk pick-up will occur the first recycling week of July, October, January, and April. These bulk collection weeks can be easily identified in the service calendar as blue weeks with black diagonal lines.
With the 96-gallon recycling carts, residents are allowed to recycling additional items and more of them than before.

Bulk Item Pickup
Bulk items consisting of old furniture and various household items will be picked up separately from other items. All building materials are excluded from curbside pickup.
To make sure your waste is picked up, make sure to follow the Solid Waste and Recycling Guidelines (PDF).
