Refuse Collection & Recycling Information

Refuse pick-up is handled by individual arrangement with local scavenger companies. A commercially manufactured container which has a close-fitting cover must be used. Refuse that is too large or heavy for the container may be placed alongside the container in such a manner that it cannot be scattered.

Yard waste such as leaves, lawn clippings, etc. must be placed in approved containers or craft paper bags. The containers shall not be placed for refuse pickup more than 24 hours before such pickup and shall be removed within 24 hours after such pickup. Such containers, when not out for pickup, shall be stored concealed from view from the street.
