Tree Waste/Junk Waste Recycling Program

The City will collect tree waste exclusively on designated months (odd months) on our heavy trash collection day which is the 4th WEDNESDAY of each month.   (Our pick up day was changed to Wednesday effective November 1, 2012)

"Tree waste" is defined as "clean wood waste" which consists of tree limbs, branches or stumps.  Lumber, furniture and treated wood will not be accepted.  On the alternating months (even months), residents may set out their junk waste at the curb for city collection.

"Junk waste" is used to describe items previously referred to as "heavy trash" such as furniture, appliances and other bulky material.  These items should be placed adjacent to the front curb in a location easily accessible to the collection vehicle between the hours of 6 pm Tuesday night and 7 am Wednesday morning.    No more than eight cubic yards per residence will be collected on the scheduled tree waste/junk waste collection day. 

Appliances containing refrigerant must have a tag attached to them certifying that a qualified technician has removed the refrigerant. 

Materials should not be stacked next to fences, signs or mailboxes; or on top of water meters, gas meters fire hydrants, or other exposed utility components. 

The SWMD is not allowed to collect any material that was generated by contractors who were retained by the resident to perform work on his or her residential property.  It is the responsibility of the contractor to remove all debris that may arise from the course of his or her activities. 

If authorized items placed for collection are mixed with unauthorized items, department personnel shall not be obligated to sort the materials and may refuse the entire load.
