Johns Disposal Service

Garbage & Recycling Information

The purpose of garbage (solid waste) operations is to provide the residents with a cost effective, environmentally correct, and quality service of weekly solid waste collection.  Our goals are to provide curbside collection service to all residents living in single-family homes and some multi-family homes.  We hope to provide exceptional customer service by responding to complaints and to effectively educate the public on proper handling and disposal of solid waste and potential hazards.  Garbage and recycling is picked up weekly.  Any item outside the garbage and recycling bin will NOT be picked up except on bulk pickup day.  Follow the link for Johns Disposal to review the garbage and recycling guidelines.
