Volume is limited to one dump truck load (approximately five cubic yards) per residence.

Hazardous items cannot be picked up (includes batteries, tires, paints, gas or air cylinders, gas tanks, sealed containers, waste motor oil, antifreeze, copiers, television sets or computer monitors, etc.) There will be a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day April 18. Please call 945-5375 for additional information and an appointment.

Refrigerated appliances will be picked up only if they have a “Freon Free” certificate properly attached.

Tree limbs should be cut into lengths not longer than 6 feet and stacked neatly and separated to be mulched.

Please place recyclable materials such as wood products, metals, appliances, etc., in separate piles to assist in recycling as much material as possible.

Please place your items out by 7 a.m. of the first day of clean up in your area.

Please place your items in the street in front of your residence. Trailer parks, etc. need to keep their items in front of their residence or next to the road adjacent to their home. Please remember community piles are not allowed.

Please keep all debris separate from regular household trash containers so it will not interrupt regular trash service.

City crews will not go onto private property to pick up items.

City crews can make only one trip through your neighborhood, so it’s important all items are ready by the start date for your area.

Please do not place your items against any buildings, fences, etc. to avoid damage.

Please do not place items out you do not want removed: wheelbarrow, trashcans, tubs, etc., as all items in the pick up area will be removed.
