Trash Service

Sanitation employees begin their routes at 7 a.m. and continue until all routes are completed. Sometimes the work load will increase the days following a holiday and routes may not be completed until 9 p.m., but that is not the norm. If a route cannot be completed on schedule, trash will be picked up first thing the following morning. 

The city is basically divided into north and south districts.
  • Those living north of Washington (91st Street) have curbside pickups on Mondays and Thursdays. 
  • Those south of Washington have pickups on Tuesdays and Fridays. 
  • The exception is a one-mile section bordered by Houston and Washington and Olive and Aspen, which is included in the Tuesday-Friday collection schedule. 

Holiday Schedule

If a holiday falls on a Monday, Monday pickups will be Tuesday, and Tuesday pickups will be Wednesday. If a holiday falls on Tuesday, Thursday or Friday, your trash will be picked up on your next regular pickup day.

Curbside Recycling


A recent telephone survey indicates that many residents are interested in curbside recycling. The City is now in the process of forming a citizens committee, that will investigate how such a program should be implemented.
