  • The green cart is for grass and plant materials that can be composted
  • The grey cart is for clean recycle materials such as paper, cardboard, aluminum and glass


If your scheduled weekly service day falls on or after a major holiday, then service may be delayed by one day for the remainder of that week. For all other holidays, residential collection remains on normal schedule.
