Sanitation Division

The Sanitation Division is responsible for the collection and disposal of residential garbage, trash and refuse generated at municipal buildings; the residential recycling program; sanitation inspections; street sweeping on public right-of-ways and collection and disposal of litter from public litter bins.   Collection and disposal services for residential garbage, as well as residential recycling, are provided by a private hauler on contract to the City.  Mobile and manual street sweeping and litter control programs are provided by the City.

Neighborhood Pride Weekends (Wasteful Weekends)
Let the first weekend of the month be a wasteful one. Take your bulk trash to one of two dumpsters locations from 8:00 a.m. Saturday to 6:00 p.m. Sunday on the first weekend of every month.

The dumpsters are located at 6 Street Community Center (6 Street between Jefferson and Meridian avenues) and at 75 Street and Dickens Avenue.

Please DO NOT dispose of chemical or hazardous materials, tires, paints, or car parts into the dumpsters.

The division maintains community involvement in the “Excuse Me, You Dropped Something!” campaign which strives to educate residents and visitors of the importance of keeping the City in tip-top shape!

If you would like to report missed garbage or recycling pick up, overflowing litter cans, leaking garbage trucks please use our eGOV portal.
