Solid household waste consists of many items or products we use each day and throw away, like product packaging, food scraps, bottles, paper, batteries, and more. Liquid household waste includes kitchen cleaners, floor cleaning products, liquid laundry soap and detergent, cooking grease, and personal care products. Garbage must be bagged and consists of all normal household waste. Contents must fall freely from the container when dumped.
Yard clippings, dirt or sod, rocks, concrete, toxic materials, highly flammable materials, and construction, and remodeling debris will not be accepted.

Your 96-gallon alley container must be placed behind your property in the alley with the handle facing your house. The container must be placed in the alley on your pick-up day by 7:00 a.m.

Bring in objects that may be blown away, such as waste and recycling bins, lawn furniture, and plants. Anchor objects that cannot be brought inside. Garbage and/or recycling bins may be tied down to prevent them from blowing away. Do not place out any bulk trash items for removal before a storm.

Please stack neatly in the swale in front of your property (if you have alley pick-up, stack it neatly next to the alley on your property so the truck can pass). Do not stack trash on the sidewalk or on top of water meter boxes and keep it away from fences. The City is not responsible for damaged fences due to improper stacking. Current ordinances require that yard waste be placed in a pile separate from the trash and away from the waste bin. Yard clippings and leaves must be bagged.
If you have alley collection, please stack trash behind your own property in the alley. Do not obstruct the alley or the garbage container with the trash and avoid making the pile too long (no more than 5 feet). Avoid placing the trash against the fence. The City is not responsible for damage done to your property if the trash is stacked too close. Alley bulk trash is picked-up once every month.
