Only bags with “TRF” printed on them will be picked up by the Sanitation Dept. Bags must be tied.   This means no un-bagged garbage will be picked up. (The only exception is broken glass, which should be boxed separately.)  Any questions regarding household or yard waste  pickup - call the Streets/Sanitation Department at 681-3640 or the Utilities Billing Office at 681-4145.



Bulky items are picked up the day of normal service.   Exception: appliances are picked up on Wednesdays.  Freon from appliances is recovered by the City, so please don’t tamper with the compressor lines.

All large items, (i.e., chairs, appliances, etc.) must have an authorized ORANGE sticker attached to them to be picked up.   Stickers are issued during bag handout, based on the rate schedule.

Extra stickers can be purchased at a cost of $5.00 each.



Boxes will be classified as “bulky items” when filled and a sticker is required.  Boxes must be able to be handled by two employees.  Four to six smaller boxes will require only one sticker.  Empty boxes are picked up at no additional cost.



Construction debris is the contractor’s responsibility.  This includes roofing, siding, old carpeting etc.
