Recycling Services

The City is committed to reducing our waste and increasing waste diversion and recycling. The City offers recycling collection services for both residential and commercial customers. The cost of residential recycling is included in the residential monthly fee, and there is no additional cost for recycling. The City offers a variety of commercial recycling services and the fee for service is about half the cost of waste disposal for similar types of service. Services offered include carts, rear load, and roll-off service.
