Garbage & Trash

The Solid Waste Division provides automated residential garbage service twice a week.  

Collection service is offered two days a week, Monday and Thursday.  Carts are to be offered for collection no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the night before scheduled pickup or by 6:00 a.m. the day of pickup.  The cart is to be removed from the curb by the end of the day of pickup.  Any cart at the curb on a "no pickup day" will be charged a $25.00 special service charge to remove the cart from the curb each time this service is required.  This charge will be added to your monthly utility bill.

Pickup up service is not offered on holidays observed by the City.  If a holiday falls on a scheduled pickup day, the pickup will be made the next day. 

A refrigerator magnet is offered free upon request, reminding customers of the collection schedules.


Trash Truck

For yard and garden collection, the following requirements apply:

  • One pile of yard waste will be collected weekly, and includes limbs, trimmings, and cuttings, not to exceed 4'x4'x8'. 
  • Limbs are not to exceed 8 feet in length and 4 inches in diameter.
  • Bushy limbs are to be cut apart and trimmed to lay flat.
  • Debris is to be placed at the corner of your property, but not on the street, sidewalk, storm gutter, canal bank, or your neighbor's property.
  • If your pickup exceeds these standards, call the public works department at 983-1471 for a special service.

Bulky Wastes collection is the pickup of "white goods" and other items that are not considered garbage or horticulture.  White goods are appliances such as washing machines, dryers, stoves, small window A/C units, refrigerator or freezer.  Units with doors are to be offered for collection after the doors have been removed and all food products have been removed and disposed of properly.  Residents must call the Public Works office at 983-1471 and arrange a pickup.  Items should not be placed for pickup until the night before the pickup date specified by the Public Works Department.

Special Pickups

  • Call the Public Works Department at 983-1471 for horticultural trash that is larger than five cubic yards, or washers, dryers, or other bulky waste.
  • A reasonable fee for the special pickup will be added to the customer's next regular bill.

Commercial Service
The Public Works Department has a full-service commercial collection.  Dumpsters of various sizes are available and will be delivered to your doorstep.  The service is offered as "on-call" or through a regularly-scheduled pickup.  Roll-off containers are also available for building or contracting needs.

Jay Ensminger serves as the Office Coordinator for the Public Works Department.  Please call with any questions or comments that you may have at 863-983-1471.
