The Department of Public Works (PW) is the only city department that actually affects every individual who that lives, works, visits, or passes through the city every single day. Public Works is responsible for operating and maintaining all city infrastructures--from the water you use to brush your teeth to the sewers that carry away the wastewater from your home; to the collection and disposal of solid waste and recycling material; to the roads, sidewalks, streetlights, and traffic signals, Public Works operates and maintains all these complicated and extensive systems.

Trash Collection

2024 Solid Waste Facility Holiday Schedule and Waste Collection

What Is Your Trash Collection Day

Trash & Single Stream Recycle Collection - With the exception of holidays (see below) you can rely on your weekly trash collection day, however, not necessarily at the same exact time each collection day. To be safe, please follow the City Ordinance which says, 

Trash & Single Stream Recyclable Waste needs to be curbside in suitable containers no sooner than 6:00 pm the day preceding the regular trash collection day and no later than 7:00 am of the regular trash collection day.

Holidays & Interruptions in Trash & Single Stream Recyclable Waste Collection - When your regular trash collection day falls on a major holiday (Fourth of July, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Years Day), your curbside residential trash collection will not be collected on that holiday. It, instead, will be collected on the following day. If your regular collection is on a Friday that is a major holiday, it will instead be collected on Saturday.
