Collection Fees

The basic service level includes weekly collection of compostables (120L Green Cart) and unlimited recycling plus bi-weekly collection of up to two containers of garbage.  For more information about the program, click here.

If you produce more than two containers of garbage every two weeks, you will be required to use Tag-a-Bag stickers

Every spring (April, May, June) and fall (September, October, November), you may place up to 10 additional paper bags of yard waste or bundles of branches out for collection in addition to your Green Cart.  At other times of the year, Tag-a-Bag stickers are required for extra yard waste.
