Garbage Service is available to all town residents within the City Limits. The garbage fee is $8 a month for residential. (Fees vary for businesses with dumpsters.) Business garbage collection is on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Residential is on Tuesdays. Each alternating Thursday is cardboard pick-up and recycling collection. (Recycling dates are printed on monthly water bills.)
Special Trash Pick-up is in the Spring and Fall and is also printed on the water bills.
All trash must be put in metal or plastic receptacle and placed at the curbside by 6:30 a.m. on Tuesdays.
90 gallon rolling trash cans are available for purchase at the Town Office for $70.00.
Water meters are read in increments of three books.
To understand which book your residence is in, look at the number printed in the bottom right corner. In an example like 03-003340, the 03 is for “book three.”
Water bills are mailed at the first of the month and due by the 15th of the month. If not paid by the 20th, service may be disconnected and a re-connection fee of $30 charged before service resumes.
