The sanitation division is charged with the collection of residential and small commercial house hold refuse using twenty yard semi-automated rear loading refuse trucks.  The refuse is placed at the curb in ninety gallon roll out carts each week.

In the event of a holiday, refuse will be picked up the next business day.  Carts need to be placed at curbside by 6:00 a.m. Please leave cart there until you are serviced.
