Curbside Recycling

Curbside recycling is only offered inside city limits to residential, single unit homes up to and including four-plex housing units. The recycling carts are green with black lids and are delivered with a schedule, which will indicate the first day to place your recycling cart at curbside.

Pick up will be the same day as your regular trash collection, but will be every other week. Recycling is not mandatory; however, solid waste rates were increased for all residents and businesses to pay for the cost of the program.
