Bi-weekly Garbage Collection

Current Collection Week

Garbage collection is bi-weekly, or every other week. 

For the purpose of curbside pick-up, the Municipality is divided into 5 zones with pick-up occurring in one of the zones each day Monday through Friday. Each zone is further split in 2 for alternating garbage collection. On the collection calendar this is reflected as Garbage Week 1 and Garbage Week 2

To determine what week your garbage will be picked up please refer to the collection schedule and calendar.
Residents are also able to take their solid waste to the Waste Transfer Station. Waste must either be properly tagged with bag tags or material will be weighted and charged accordingly.
