2021 Holidays
There will be no trash & recycling collection on holidays; please refer to the holiday list here or the 2021 Municipal Calendar that's mailed out annually. Trash & recycling collection that falls on a holiday will be collected the following day. Each subsequent collection day will be pushed to the following day for the work week.
Winter '20-'21
We ask all residents and contractors to refrain from blowing, plowing, and/or shoveling snow into the street. This is counterproductive to our efforts to clear and salt the streets, and makes it hazardous to motorists and pedestrians.
When placing your recycling and trash carts out for collection, place them on a level surface, and clear the snow and ice from the tops of the carts. If you have scheduled a Large Trash Item Collection or Large Appliance and Metal Item Collection, we ask that you place all items in an area free from snow and ice. This will allow our crews to work safely and efficiently so we can collect at all scheduled stops.

Tree Care Experts
Trees are valuable landscape assets. They provide beauty and shade, along with a number of social, environmental, community, and economic benefits to our cities, town, suburbs, and landscapes. For these reasons, trees require an investment of time, money and expertise for the proper selection, planting, care, maintenance and removal. When problems occur, such as storm or insect damage, or general maintenance is required, the help of a tree care professional may be warranted.
