  2. Type in your home address at the top of the webpage.
  3. Select your correct address. Underneath your address, select the second option titled Trash and Recycling. Once you have selected Trash and Recycling, your trash and recycling collection day will appear, along with your recycling collection color.
  4. Once you are aware of your week designation, please follow the recycling collection calendar below.

An asterisk * indicates an observed holiday. All collection services (recycling, garbage, yard waste and bulky waste) will operate on a one-day delay with Friday customers receiving service on Saturday.
