Garbage & Recycling


Residents are charged $13.40 for garbage pick up and are billed monthly with the utility bill.

The only holidays that will change your garbage pickup day are Christmas Day and New Years Day. If your garbage day falls on Christmas Day or New Years Day, garbage will be collected the next day.


As a service to its residents, the City offers curbside recycling at no additional charge.  If you are interested in this service, please pick up a red recycling bin at the Utilities office. Seniors 65 or older will get a $1 discount with a photo ID.
