Other Services

These services are included in your monthly residential waste collection service at no additional charge.



Extra Service Stickers

Residents receive 12 extra service stickers per year for free pick up of extra garbage, recycling or green waste that will not fit in your carts.


  • Place extra material in a 30-gallon plastic bag; attach the sticker to the bag.
  • Place the bag next to the appropriate cart (gray-lid cart for trash, green-lid cart for green waste and food waste, yellow-lid cart for recycling)
  • Make sure the sticker faces the street for the driver to see.


- Once the 12 extra service stickers have been used, additional service is available at a nominal cost.

- Extra service stickers are mailed directly to the service address each year.

- New set of stickers may be used from January 1 through December 31.


Clean Sweep Program

Each year, residents have one opportunity (February 1 to October 31) to dispose of 3 cubic yards of bulky items and waste free of charge. For more information, visit the Clean Sweep page.


Additional bulky waste pick-ups are available for a fee year-round. Contact your garbage hauler for details. Costs can be found on the current garbage rates document. 


Street Sweeping

Residential areas will be swept every other week on the day following your waste collection day. Sweeping will occur between 4 a.m. and 5 p.m.


Vehicles parked on the street, low-hanging branches or other impediments prohibit sweepers from cleaning streets and gutters. Residents are encouraged to remove vehicles and any other obstacles from the streets on sweeping days.


Seasonal Leaf Collection

During Leaf Season – Oct. 1 to Dec. 31 only – your service provider will collect up to five bags of extra leaves per week at no additional charge. Visit the Seasonal Leaf Collection web page to learn more.


Christmas Tree Collection

Christmas trees will be collected for three weeks starting the first Monday after December 25. Christmas trees should be set out for recycling on your regularly scheduled collection day. Make sure to remove all ornaments, tinsel, lights, and stands.


  • If the tree is taller than 6 feet, cut it in half so it is easier to remove.
  • Place the tree at the curb.
  • Flocked or fireproofed trees may be placed curbside. However, they will not be recycled.


If you still have a Christmas tree to dispose of after the third week, please cut it into smaller pieces and place it in your organics cart for recycling.


Backyard Service

This service allows the customer's carts to receive collection services from a location other than at curbside. This is a convenient way to make sure you never miss your weekly collection.


Senior and disabled residents may receive Back Yard Service at no cost with medical verification. For a small monthly fee, residents may request Back Yard Service. Contact your Garbage Service Providers to learn more.
