Garbage Can Info: Garbage cans stay with the property, unless a different size is requested.

Garbage Pick-up: Cans are picked up very early Tuesday morning.  It is recommended you place the can out Monday night.  Place can within 7 feet of curb with serial number facing the street.  Do not place it in between or behind parked vehicles where the truck cannot access. If you are not sure which side of your property to place the can, look at your neighbors.  Please do not place hot ashes or anything extremely hot in cans-let it cool first. Please remove the can from the curb area after your garbage has been picked up.

City Dump: The City Dump is for leaves, grass clippings, and tree limbs only.  You will need to obtain a key from City Hall, City Maintenance, or the Mayor.
