The Sanitation Division will be collecting Christmas trees bi-weekly on your regularly scheduled yard waste day through January 26.  Please leave your Christmas tree at the curb and we will pick it up.


The Sanitation Division of the Public Works Department provides curbside collection of trash, recycling and yard waste to single-family residences that are within the city limits.  It also provides trash collection from City parks, municipal parking lots and a number of City operated facilities.
