The Sanitation Division provides weekly residential curbside trash collection for residential dwellings of six units or less. Each single-family residential unit is limited to a maximum of four 32‐gallon containers or eight 32‐gallon trash bags. The resident is responsible for providing the collection containers; there are no City provided containers. Trash collection is performed with public employees using rear‐load compactors. Approximately 530, 000 residential units are served.
The more you know about the DOs and DON’Ts of trash collection and recycling – as well as practical information, like collection schedules – the easier it is to do your part to keep our city clean. Here’s a list of important information that can help:

Get behind recycling – the right way!
In the past few years we have made tremendous strides in curbside recycling, and the residential curbside recycling rates are at an all-time high. Even with all of your great efforts, some unaccepted items are still ending up in recycling bins, which can damage recycling machinery and slow down the process.
Proper Containers for Setout
Place all trash in metal or other non-corrodible personal trashcans or sealed plastic bags, filled only to the 40 pound limit. Wood scraps along with tree and brush cuttings shall be cut in pieces small enough to fit in a receptacle for set out.
For recycling, you can use any sturdy plastic or metal container that holds 32 gallons or less and just mark it with the word "RECYCLING" on its side. If one bin is not enough to hold all recyclables, simply add another one.
NOTE: Cardboard boxes may never be used as containers for trash/recycling, regardless of who collects it!
Use your own containers to set out trash. City litter baskets are for pedestrian use only. Do not use them to dispose of your household trash.
Weekly Limits for Trash
- Each single-family household is allowed a maximum of four (4) 32 gallon containers or eight (8) 30 – 32 gallon bags of trash each week
- Apartment buildings with 2 – 6 units and businesses, up to six (6) 32-gallon containers or twelve (12) 30 – 32 gallon bags
- The weight limit for a bag or can is 40 lbs. The total weight should not exceed 240 lbs
