Green Organics Carts are now collected weekly.

Feed your Cart with food scraps, dairy products, tissues and yard waste. Remember plastic bags do not belong inside as they cannot be composted. 

The Compost Depot is open to accept residential leaf and yard waste.

There will be no waste collection on Friday, April 19. Collection will occur on Monday, April 22 for any areas not collected due to Good Friday. Regular waste collection will occur for Monday households. 

The Mike Mitchell Recycling Depot will be closed on Friday, April 19 for Good Friday. 

Oops! Napkins, paper towels, tissues and tissue paper are not acceptable for recycling. Instead, they can go inside the Green Organics Cart to be composted.
