Trash pick-up is included in your water utility service. Trash is scheduled to be picked up on Thursdays if your residence is south of Jackson (US 28) and West of Council (US 41). It will be on Friday if your residence is North of Jackson (US 28) and East of Council (US 41). In the event that a holiday occurs in the week, Thursday pick-up will become Friday pick-up and Friday pick-up will become Saturday pick-up. Any questions may be directed to Allied Waste at 1-800-797-9097 or by contacting the Clerk’s office. City Ordinance states that your blue trash barrel should not be placed out on the curb for pick-up before noon the day before your trash pick-up date. Likewise, your trash barrel should be stowed away, off the city curb/street, no later than noon the day after your scheduled trash pick-up day. Thank you for keeping our city beautiful!
Bagged leaves, twigs, and other landscape materials shall be set by the curb and picked up as time permits on no set schedule. Only items left on the curb in front of your residence will be picked up. Yard waste left in the alley will not be picked up by the city. Pick-up will not be as frequent during December-March unless a storm occurs that brings down a lot of debris around the city.
The City requests that you use biodegradable bags to collect yard waste for pick-up. These may be purchased at County Market, Neumayr Lumber and other stores. Yard waste placed in regular plastic bags will not be collected by the city.
During the month of November, the City will operate a leaf vac throughout all city streets. Leaves that are raked to the curb will be collected. Please do not put brush in with the leaves as the machine is unable to vacuum anything but leaves. A second pass of all city streets will take place dependent upon weather. Burning of leaves is NOT permitted.
