Zones 1, 8, 2 & 4 Week of 4/1
*Do not place curbside more than one week before collection week, but not later than 7am of first day.From time to time, DPW may ‘get ahead’ and begin to collect in a zone ahead of the posted schedule but they will return during the scheduled week.

BULK PICKUP will begin by zone in mid-April.  Please see the recycling calendar for details. 

Brush and leaves may NOT be commingled.   For the safety of all residents, please note the following regulations:

  • Lawn debris is to be placed curbside (not in the roadway, but on your property near the road) by 7:00 am on the first day of the scheduled pickup week.
  • Please do not place lawn debris near sewer drains. If you have a sewer inlet on or near your property, please take a moment to ensure the drain is clear and free from debris. With just a few minutes a month you can help reduce flooding and keep our waterways healthy! #adopt-a-drain
  • Weather permitting; it generally takes approximately one week to complete the scheduled zones. Once a street has been completed, the DPW will not return to that street. If you miss your zone’s scheduled pickup see below for recycling center guidelines or you may arrange for a private contractor.
  • For the safety of pedestrians and motorists do not place lawn debris at the curb earlier than one week prior to the first scheduled collection date.

Brush and leaves cannot be commingled with each other, grass, rocks, stumps, construction debris, fence posts, etc., trash or recyclables.  Landscapers or residents placing debris for collection in an unauthorized manner shall be required to remove the waste from the public right of way.
