Refuse and Recycling

Refuse & Recycling Update (April 2015) : Recycling will be picked up first and then refuse. Refuse could be later in the afternoon, depending on traffic. Again we suggest carts be out by 6am, if not the night before.

Johns Disposal is the City's hauler with two carts for your property: one 64 gallon for refuse and one 96 gallon for recycling.  Refuse will be collected every week and recycling will be collected every other week.

  • Residents will be required to bring the new carts to the curb on their refuse and recycling days.  Extra bags that are outside the carts will not be taken.  It is okay if the lid is propped open by refuse bags and does not close all of the way.
  • Plastic Bags should not be used for recyclables at any time. 
  • One bulky item per week will be picked up.  Bulky items are defined as: furniture, carpeting, windows, doors, large toys, bicycles, lawn mowers, snow blowers. 
  • Items NOT included in bulky pickup: TV's, computers and other electronics.
  • The carts are owned by Johns Disposal and must stay with the property.

* Your old blue recycle bin can be placed in the NEW recycle cart for disposal or marked for removal and placed at the curb for pick up.

Refuse/Recycling Pickup Days


Some adjustments to the refuse/recycling pickup days have been changed for the properties along the south side of the railroad tracks and to the east side of Summit Ave.  Their collection day will change from Tuesday to Wednesday. Johns Disposal will be providing notification to the affected properties of this change in the informational packet when the carts are delivered.  See the attached refuse/recycling collection calendar or map.
