Curbside Collection
  • Pickup Day:  Fridays (early).  Place trash and recycling containers at the curb no earlier than 6:00 pm the day before and no later than 6:00 am on collection day.
  • Holidays:  Your material will be collected on your regularly scheduled collection day unless that day falls on New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, or Christmas Day. In the event your collection day falls on one of these six holidays or we experience inclement weather, your collection will normall be delayed one day. 
  • Containers:  Trash shall be stored in closed containers and shall not remain in public view except on days of trash collection.  Mark all yard waste containers and non-County issued recycling containers with an “X” so the collectors know it’s recycling, not trash. County issued yellow containers need not be marked with “X’s”. Do not place yard waste in a County issued yellow container.  Homeowners are responsible for cleaning any unsecured trash that is blown or spilled from their container.
  • You can recycle all the paper, plastic metal and glass that comes into your home.
  • You can put as many containers of recycling at the curb as you need.
  • Use containers such as County issued yellow cards, containers or bins.  You may also use a container of your choice marked with an "X" so the collectors know it's recycling, not trash.
  • Plase paper, plastic, metal and glass together in the same recycling container(s)
