Solid waste collection schedule to change starting August 7
To make garbage, recycling, green bin and yard waste collection more efficient, the City is making changes to its waste collection boundaries starting on August 7. This means, some residents may have a change in their collection day and the schedule of their garbage, recycling, green bin and yard waste collection.

All collection schedule changes are outlined in the new 2007-2008 Garbage, Recycling and Green Bin Collection Calendar delivered door-to-door to residents receiving City curbside collection. One-page collection schedule summaries are also available online at

Residents can check their collection schedules by turning to August 2007 (page two) in the new collection calendar and looking to the week of August 7 to confirm the correct collection day and the items to set out. A collection schedule will not change unless a change is shown starting August 7.
