Collection ChangeTrash and Recycling Collection Schedules

Solid Waste Services is experiencing a slight increase in inquiries about
missed collection of trash and recycling containers.

Please note the following...

  • Trash and recycling is collected between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m.
  • Though it may seem the truck arrives about the same time every week, there is no specific scheduled time for trash or recycling containers to be emptied.
  • Time of collection varies due to truck load capacity, traffic, weather, route changes, road construction and street or utility maintenance.
  • To ensure collection service is not interrupted, have your can at the curb by 6 a.m. on your day of collection or after 6 p.m. the evening before your collection day.
  • Reports of missed collection are verified by container inspections on a street, and by review of GPS reports that track a collection truck route and the number of stops completed by the truck on each street.
Two ways to find your collection days:
