Trash Rules & Procedures
All trash (no yard debris) must be out to the curb, or in an area that has been cleared near the street, curb, or driveway, by 7:00 am on your scheduled pickup day. Trash must be in clear plastic bags not weighing over 25 pounds per bag. Single-family homes are limited each week to 10 bags
Trash is defined as anything that is generated normally within a household during a week’s time. This does not include items such as: white goods, TVs, computers, small appliances, carpeting, building supplies, furniture, large tree limbs, tires, tire rims, or garden materials other than apples or corn husks. Items not included for pickup must be privately contracted through a local hauler.
Recycling Rules & Procedures
Recyclables should be placed curbside, or in an area that has been cleared near the street, curb, or driveway, by 7:00 am on your scheduled pickup day.
Recyclables should be placed in a container that can be easily dumped, i.e. a laundry basket, crate, or any container that is not or doesn’t resemble a trashcan or garbage pail. Try to avoid white containers, as they are hard to see in the snow. Recyclables should be set out for collection on a weekly basis.
