Waste & Recycling Service

Waste is collected twice per week and recycling is collected once per week.

Cart Placement

Place your carts at least three (3) feet apart from any obstacles (trees, cars, mailboxes, etc.) to allow the automatic arm to lift and empty the carts. Place the wheels of the cart toward your house.

WM Cart Placement Graphic

Have your cart at your curb by 7:00 a.m.

Waste Cart

The lid must be securely closed. This ensures that litter is not blown in your neighborhood and that all disposed of items are secure. No waste or recyclables left outside your cart will be collected. Bulk, yard trimmings, or excess waste will be collected on your scheduled bulk collection day.

Recycling Cart

Please place all recyclables in the green cart with the yellow lid. Recyclables should be loose inside the cart, not bagged. Additional recyclables outside the cart will not be serviced. Existing recycling bins will not be picked up and can be used as personal bins in the garage or utility room.

Missed Collection

Despite their best efforts, Waste Management occasionally misses scheduled collections. If they do, contact them directly at or by calling (800) 800-5804 as soon as you can. They will try to return on the same day to pick up your waste or recycling. If the driver has already left your area, they will pick up what we missed the following day.

Yard Waste & Bulk Collection

Yard waste is collected at the curb every other week on the same day as Bulk Collection. Yard waste is not to exceed two (2) cubic yards per collection. Important! For the safety and protection of our employees and equipment, branches and tree trimmings must be no greater than six inches (6”) in diameter and be cut into four-foot (4’) lengths and tied into bundles weighing no more than fifty pounds (50 lbs). Containers must have all trash bagged.

Bulk collection will be collected at the curb, every-other-week, with a limit of two (2) items. Bulk pick-up happens on your scheduled collection day. Moving boxes must be broken down and put out on this day. Bulk trash consists of appliances, furniture, mattresses, carpet, (cut in 4-foot lengths), lawnmowers, etc. Appliances that contain refrigerant must be drained and tagged by a certified refrigerant recycler prior to disposal.
