TEXTILE UPDATE
Curbside pickup of textiles, also known as the Pink Bags, notified us that they are no longer providing their service to communities.

You can still drop off textiles at the drop off boxes located at all the schools and the Savage Center. If the drop off boxes are full, please do not leave bags on the ground - thank you for protecting the workers doing the pickup!

Curbside Guidelines

  • Trash is picked up weekly. Recycling is picked up every other week. Trash and recycle carts must be curbside by 7:00 a.m. on your regularly scheduled trash day. Drivers will not go back if you don't have your carts out curbside.
  • Please follow the 3 foot rule when placing your carts curbside. Carts need to be three feet away from everything else. It is your responsibility to space the carts correctly. It is your responsibility to place carts where drivers can empty them.
  • Carts must be placed at the edge of the roadway with wheels facing away from the street.
  • Please be sure cart lids are closed.
