The Sanitation Division collects household solid waste from its customers on a once per week basis. This "WEEKLY COLLECTION" takes place Monday through Friday. City crews will pick up those items that are placed in their polycarts or that are properly bundled per city ordinance. Below is a map showing pickup days. All trash should be out by 6:00am the day of your collection.
If your trash does not meet City code requirements, a tag will be left at your door explaining why your trash was not picked up.
Section 240.080 : AUTHORIZED RESIDENTIAL CONTAINERS states that containers other than disposable types shall not exceed thirty-two (32) gallons capacity, must have secure lid and handle.
SECTION 240.030 : COLLECTION OF GARBAGE AND TRASH states that all garbage and trash containers should be placed at the curb or alley no sooner than 24 hours before 6:30AM on the customer's collection day and are to be removed from the curb within 24 hours after collection.
