Curbside trash collection is every Tuesday for properties on Market Street and north and every Friday south of Market Street. Trash should be to the curb after 6 p.m. the night prior to pickup. Maximum six bags of trash plus 10 bags of yard waste per week. Large item pickup once per month. In the event of a holiday trash collection will be delayed one day.

Single-stream recycling materials are collected curbside from designated containers every other week on trash collection day. There is no need to separate steel and aluminum, glass, plastic and paper… they all go in one container. Please secure loose paper in clear plastic bags.

Christmas Tree collection or pick-up will take place on your regularly scheduled trash pick-up day. County Waste will pick-up Christmas trees with your household trash.
