Recycling

The city is billed $2.83 per household each month for recycling pick up.  Please recycle everything that you can.

Waste Management accepts some items that previously had not been accepted.  Included in this list are dairy and juice cartons as well as plastic containers (#1-#7) such as yogurt and sour cream containers.  Lids on those items are also accepted and should be left ON the container.  For residents that shred documents, shredded paper is accepted in a paper bag with the top stapled or rolled shut.  Paperback books are also accepted.  

Curbside Recycling is contracted to Waste Management.

Pickup Schedule

Pickup is every other Thursday.
