Solid waste and rubbish are collected from each dwelling unit on Wednesdays, either in the morning or afternoon. They may not run at the same time every week. Recyclable materials are collected from each dwelling unit twice per month. Commercial refuse is collected from each commercial establishment a minimum of once per week. Residents can deliver their garbage or rubbish to a county landfill, but the minimum garbage and recycling charges will be charged each month whether or not the service is used.

Yard waste is not considered rubbish unless the user elects to dispose of it in containers.

Recyclables will be collected twice a month on Thursdays. Please place your recycling bins at the curb next to your garbage containers no later than 6:30am. 2018 Recycle schedule
