Garbage & Recycling
Garbage pick up is a contracted service provided by Johns Disposal Services.
Garbage Pick Up
Garbage pick up is every Wednesday. Schedules may be adjusted due to holidays. Recyclables are picked up on alternating Wednesdays based upon locations east or west of Jefferson Street as indicated on the Garbage & Recycling Calendar Schedule.
Bulk Item Collection
If you have large items such as furniture or appliances, contact Johns Disposal for a special pick-up. A minimal fee may be charged. Dumpsters are also available for construction or other large projects for a fee.
