Holiday Collections - truck

Due to the Independence Day holiday, our offices will be closed on Thursday this week and there will be no collection service on Thursday, July 4. If your collection day is Thursday, your bins will be serviced Friday. If your collection day is Friday, your bins will be serviced Saturday.

WHAT GOES IN EACH BIN?

The standard container allotment for single-family dwellings and each unit of a duplex based on the SRF is one 60-gallon black container for refuse; one 90-gallon green container for yard trimmings; one 90 gallon blue container for recyclables. The standard allowance for multi-family dwellings is one 60-gallon black container per dwelling unit for refuse; one 90 gallon green container for yard trimmings for the lot; one 90-gallon blue container for recyclables for every four units.  Some households have brown bins, by request, for horse manure. By placing material in the proper bins, you can prevent contamination that occurs when non-recyclable items are discarded in the BLUE bin and when anything other than yard trimmings are placed in the GREEN bin. Non-recyclable items such as paper or boxes with grease or food residue, treated wood and wood-products, cloth/fabric, and fats/oils/grease in sealed containers belong in your BLACK bin. Hazardous waste and e-waste may be taken to S.A.F.E. Centers. If you have questions, need to request a new bin, or have items that are too large for your bins, please call our Customer Care Center at 1-800-773-2489.
