Solid Waste Management

What We Do
The Division of Solid Waste Management provides weekly collection of residential refuse, recycling, bulk and brush, commercial refuse collection, and seasonal collection of bagged leaves. See below for a brief description of our programs.

Residential Collection
  1. Refuse
  2. Single-Stream Recycling
  3. Bulk & Brush
Refuse collection is provided to all city residences. Each household is issued a 96-gallon automated container, known as "Big Blue," which is mechanically serviced by a One-Arm Bandit Truck on a weekly basis. 

Central Business District


The Central Business District is now mostly a self-service trash and recycling district.  The city currently has four sealed compactor zones.  These four zones allow residents and businesses to dispose of their trash and recycling 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Click here for more information.
