Solid Waste 3n1
3 Core Service in 1 Day for Our Customers!”


The Department of Public Works continues to improve on our service delivery. Effective August 1, 2011 we will begin citywide weekly collection service for household garbage, recycling, and yard trimmings per quadrant of the city.

3 n 1 service per quadrant of the City will allow for concentrated efforts in a given area,
reduced carbon emissions and reduced missed collections.

The new 3 n 1 service will also provide additional services such as
residential street sweeping, bulk waste pick-up and concentrated solid waste education and enforcement.
Customers will receive prior notice of scheduled street sweeping and bulk waste pick up dates.

Household garbage, recycling, and yard trimmings will continue to be collected
on the same day per quadrant of the city as follows:
