Trash Removal

Trash removal is currently contracted through Republic Services. Republic Services evaluates the residential rate annually and residents are charged accordingly. The rate for 2021 is $15.32 per month. This charge is included on your utility bill.

Each residence is limited to one 95-gallon bin of trash. The lid of the trash bin must close properly, DO NOT OVERFILL. Republic Services WILL NOT EMPTY YOUR BIN IF YOU OVERFILL! If you have more trash than the limit, you may purchase special tags to be placed on your trash bag, from the Utility Office at City Hall. Each tag is $1.00. Trash must be placed at the curb. Republic Services will not take large piles of construction material. We recommend you rent a dumpster for this type of project.

The City conducts an annual SPRING and FALL cleanup days. Residents may bring certain types of unwanted refuse to the Street Department parking lot for free disposal. These clean up days are held the third Saturday of May and September. Residents must provide proof of residency by showing a current utility bill.
