The mission of the Solid Waste Division is to protect the environment, public health and welfare, and enhance the quality of life by providing effective programs to collect and remove solid waste materials in a convenient, economical and environmentally sensitive manner.
Activities include: removal and disposal of all refuse accumulated inside the city limits which includes single family and multi-family residences as well as commercial businesses and other non-residential customers. Refuse collection and disposal services include: garbage, yard debris, appliances, furniture and other household items.
