Container Regulations:  Garbage and recyclables must be placed in the containers provided.  Containers must be placed curbside with the arrow on the container facing the street.

Collections:  Place containers on curb line away from trees, telephone poles or other obstacles.  Garbage must be placed out by 5:00 a.m. on your day of collection.  Garbage may not be placed on the curb more than 12 hours before your collection day.  Containers must be taken back the same day as collection.          

Bulky collection is the second week of the month and items may be placed "loose" curbside.

Winter Collection:  Place containers curbside, so they can be reached from the street.

The entire year's collection schedule is available on the John's Disposal Service webpage



Recycling is mandatory statewide as of January 1, 1995.  Recyclables are collected curbside in an alternate week program.  A separate truck will pick up your recyclables on the same day as your regular garbage.

General Guidelines:  Set the provided recycling container out on the curb on your normal collection day at least five (5) feet from your regular waste by 5:00 a.m.
