The city contracts with one company (currently Waste Management) to provide curbside recycling. The fees for recycling services are paid by property owners through their utility bill.

For a detailed list of what you can recycle, check our  Recycling Guide. All recyclable items should be placed loosely in the cart.  If your cart is full you can put extra recyclables in paper bags and place them next to your cart at the curb on your pick-up day.

When is household recycling collected?

Your cart must be at the curb by 6:30 a.m. on your recycling day and will be picked up no later than 6:30 p.m. Route schedules can change due to weather, road work, mechanical repairs etc.

Recycling is collected every other week.
