Holidays – If New Years Day, Independence Day, or Christmas Day land on a garbage collection day, pickup service will be delayed by one day for each subsequent collection day that week. Those whose collection day is Thursdays will receive service on the Friday following Thanksgiving Day. Holidays on Mondays and Fridays do not affect the normal garbage collection schedule.
Placement of Containers – Containers should be placed in the street with the wheels against the curb or within 2 feet of the blacktop and the front of the container facing the street by 6:00 a.m. on the scheduled day. Containers should be placed 4 feet apart from other containers and 8 feet from mailboxes, poles, fences, trees, and parked vehicles for easy access. Containers should be placed away from overhead obstacles such as tree branches and wires.
Garbage Etiquette – All waste should be bagged and placed in containers. Containers should not be overloaded. The lid should close to help prevent spills when dumping. Containers should only be used for household trash and acceptable yard waste. Acceptable yard waste includes grass clippings, leaves, tree limbs and shrub trimmings cut to fit inside the container.
Unacceptable Waste – Dirt, rocks, sod, and concrete are unacceptable. Other unacceptable waste includes flammable materials such as oil, gas, and paint or hot ashes and coals; hazardous and toxic waste, septic tank waste, unbagged animal waste or explosive and radioactive materials; automotive products including motor oil, tires, and batteries; and metal and debris from construction, remodeling, or demolition projects.
Care of Containers – Containers must remain on the resident’s property as assigned and properly cared for. Residents shall be responsible for any loss or damage to the containers resulting from negligence and abuse, except for normal wear and tear.
