Every year, the Sanitation
Department offers a Spring Clean up week. This is a free service available to all residents so that every citizen may place any household items in addition to the normal refuse out for pick up. This event is publicized by website, radio and newspaper, in
advance to allow ample time for
preparation. There are some
restrictions for certain items.
During the hot summer months,
the Sanitation Department
advises residents to keep refuse
containers tightly closed and bags properly sealed to avoid various animals from snacking on the contents and spreading refuse over resident's yards.
There are several special weeks
designated for fall leaves, and
residents are encouraged during
this time to take their leaves to a
compost site at the transfer station for disposal. Residents will be required to take bags or containers that they brought their leaves in, back home with them. Also, our Sanitation Department will pick up bagged leaves for a fee of $5.00 for the first 6 bags and 50 cents for each additional bag. Watch for more information to be announced on the website, over the radio and in the newspaper.
Each year, the Sanitation
Department offers a free
Christmas tree pick up service.
This service is usually provided
within the first week of January.
A phone call to City Hall or the
Sanitation Department is all that
is normally required. This service
is announced by website, radio and in the
newspaper in advance of the
