Trash and Recycling Collection Schedule

curbside collection map

Effective March 6, 2017

If you have alley trash collection, please call customer service for your trash collection days.
You can also find your collection days and set reminders on the free Recycle Coach, or enter your address in the City's InfoMap to find collection days, your neighborhood code inspector, crime prevention officers, and more.

  • 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 truckload 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 with the lid closed by 6 a.m. on your day of collection or after 6 p.m. the evening before your collection day.
  • Remove your container from the curb no later than 9 a.m. the day after collection.

If you believe your container was missed, check your neighbors’ cans to see if the collection truck has been by yet. If your can was the only one not collected, leave the container at the curb and call customer service early the next business day. If your collection day is Friday, call by 3 p.m.

The missed collection is verified by container inspections on a street and reviewing GPS tracking the route and the stops made by a collection truck on a street.
