Garbage collection is provided to all Town residents along with a rollout container. The Town does not charge for garbage collection; however, there is a landfill fee of $15.40 per month included with your utility bill.

Garbage collection for residents inside the city limits is every Friday morning and it is recommended that trash be placed curbside on Thursday evening.

Only one container per address is permitted.

Please place your recyclable material in the recycle cart provided to all Town residents. Recycling must be placed curbside no later than 6:00 a.m. the day of collection.
