Same Day Trash Collection
The City’s award-winning sanitation service is about to get even better! Beginning May 5, BOTH your black (trash) and blue (recycling) barrels will be picked up at the curb on the same day each week.

That’s right! One day each week will be your trash and recycle pickup day. Simple for you and a more efficient use of city resources. We call it "same day service".

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please leave a four-foot separation between your trash and recycling cans on your pick up day. Our sanitation crews need that much room to operate the automated pickup arms on city trash/recycle trucks!

Which day is your new trash/recycle pick up day? Check the new schedule and service map below to find out. And look for a note from us at your front door, as well as a sticker on your cans prior to the MAY 5, 2014 LAUNCH DATE!

Here’s an easy way to remember the change...

  • 1. Just one day to remember for trash/recycle pick up
  • 2. Both your trash and recycling will be picked up on the same day
  • 4. Keep 4-feet distance between your trash & recycle cans when placing them at the curb
  • 5. May 5, 2014 same-day collection begins
