TRASH UPDATE: On 1-18-23, residents were advised that the Board has voted to terminate the contract of GFL Environmental for trash/recycling removal services, effective 3-31-2023 and enter into a contract with Gardner Disposal Service. Contract negotiations are going on and as soon as an agreement is reached, the details of the new service agreement will be shared with the residents.
Schedule: All trash, recycling and yard waste must be at the curb by 6:30 am Tuesday each week.
Pricing: Because we have a bulk contract, we can save money compared to each homeowner having single subscriptions.
Electronics: None of the trash haulers recycle electronics. Homeowners are responsible for recycling their own electronics, but the city has annual recycling events.
Glass: Homeowners are responsible for recycling their own glass. There are many receptacles throughout the city.
Contamination: For all recyclables, please clean them from all food and contaminants for the health and safety of the recycling program. For example, rinse all the milk out of a jug before recycling. Failure to do so can result in refusal to collect your recyclables.
Holiday schedules: Our provider will be set up some holiday relief for their drivers. Thanksgiving and Christmas (when falling on a scheduled pick up) will be delayed by one day.
Yard waste: Yard waste pickup is included throughout the year. Yard Waste must be in biodegradable bags ONLY. Grass clippings, leaves, branches, brush, shrubs must be placed in yard waste bags, all which may be purchased at any lawn and garden center like Wal-Mart, Lowes or Home Depot. NO PLASTIC BAGS OF YARD WASTE WILL BE COLLECTED & NO CONTAINERS WITH YARD WASTE. Branches must be in 4 foot sections tied and left at the curb. The limit on yard trash is 10 bags
Large item pickups: Each resident is allowed one free bulky item once a month. Please contact WCA to schedule pick-up for this item. Examples of a bulky items are a couch, chair, table, BBQ grill, bed, mattress, etc. NO APPLIANCES, OIL, DIRT, ROCK, or CONCRETE.
Late or missed pickups. If a driver misses a scheduled pickup, call the provider, and they often will reschedule a pickup. See below.
