Note to Customers
  • Overdue bills need to be paid 24 hours before your pickup day in order to get picked up that day. Monday customers that are overdue must pay before 10 am on Friday (the week before) to get picked up.
  • Yard Waste customers need to pay for yard waste service in advance if they would like to get picked up.
  • Recycle customers are getting left behind because of non recycle items (plastic bags, Styrofoam, shredded paper) in their cart. Taking a second look at our recycling guide could save both of us time and hassle.
