Rules for Waste Disposal
Dispose of your garbage (ordinary household waste, paper food containers (flattened), unused food and items used in the preparation of food) only in the automated containers provided by the City. Make sure the lid is closed, without packing garbage too tightly. These containers are owned by the City and are assigned to a street address.
By 7 a.m. on your collection day, place the container as close as possible to the curb or roadside, not on the street. Make sure the container has at least 3 feet of clearance from mailboxes, parked cars, etc. All containers shall be placed at the curb for collection no earlier than 24 hours prior to 7:00 a.m. of the day of collection and once placed at the curb for collection all containers shall not remain on the curb for a period exceeding more than 24 hours after 7:00 a.m. of the day of collection. All containers shall be placed in a carport or enclosed building or behind the nearest portion of the residence or the building to the street when not set out for collection.
Per City Code 62-58: Normal collection service shall not begin prior to 7:00 a.m.
Yard waste should be recycled and not placed in the automated container. Construction debris and building materials are the responsibility of the homeowner or tenant and cannot be collected. Soil, rocks, ashes and plaster, as well as tires, automobile batteries and parts must not be placed in a container. It is unlawful to place hazardous waste such as chemical materials, toxins or flammable items in a waste container.
