Other Services

These services are included in your monthly residential waste collection service at no additional charge.


Extra Service Stickers

Residents receive 12 extra service stickers per year for free pick up of extra garbage, recycling or green waste when needed. Use these any time you have trash, recycling or green waste that will not fit into your carts.

  • Simply place the extra material in a 30-gallon plastic bag and attach the sticker to the bag.
  • Place the bag next to the appropriate cart (grey cart for trash, green cart for green/food waste, yellow cart for recycling)
  • Make sure the sticker faces the street, so the driver can see it.


- Once the 12 extra service stickers have been used, additional service is available at a nominal cost.

- Extra service stickers are mailed directly to the service address each December. 

- The new set of stickers may be used January 1 through December 31 of the following year.

Street Sweeping

Residential areas will be swept every other week the day following your waste collection day. Sweeping will occur between the hours of 4 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Remember, vehicles parked on the street, low-hanging branches or other impediments prohibit sweepers from cleaning streets and gutters. Residents are encouraged to remove vehicles and any other obstacles from the streets on sweeping days.

  • Remove all tinsel, ornaments and metal stands from the trees.
  • If your tree is longer than six feet, it must be cut in half to be collected.
  • Flocked or fireproofed trees may be placed at curbside for collection but cannot be recycled.
