Solid Waste Division
The city is divided into
four collection zones to improve solid waste services for our
residential customers. With this schedule, one zone receives complete
service each day, Monday through Thursday. All household garbage,
recycling, yard waste and bulky junk are picked up on the same day
each week. Put yard waste in bags or other containers, but
do not mix yard waste with household refuse. The
Solid Waste Division also operates a solid waste transfer station on Mr.
Joe White Avenue.
