Pick Up Day

Recycling carts are emptied on the same day as trash carts, but only picked up every other week. Garbage is picked up every week, and yard waste (such as leaves & branches) is picked up the DAY AFTER garbage every week.

Pick Up Week 

Recycling is collected every other week. We call them "Gold" and "Green" weeks. 

Click here to view the interactive map and zoom in to your street address to see whether you're located in a "Green" or "Gold" week area. Once you know if you're "Gold" of "Green" week, you can use our Recycling Calendar to stay in the know!
