Extra Cart Fee - Households with more than one garbage cart will incur a $15 per quarter charge for each additional garbage cart. To avoid this charge, contact the Call Center at 286-CITY (2489) to request the City remove the extra garbage carts from your property. There is no extra charge for more than one recycling cart.
Construction Related Material Charge - There is a charge for all City residents bringing construction related material into the self help stations. This includes roofing material, brick, stones, concrete, lumber, drywall, paneling and other construction material. The charge is $20 for up to 8 cubic yards, and $40 for 8-16 cubic yards. (16 cubic yard maximum.) No contractor vehicles allowed.
Bulky Changes - City crews will only pick up one (1) cubic yard of extra material placed out for pickup on your designated collection day. This is about the size of an easy chair. Call 286-CITY (2489) to request pickup of larger piles for a fee. See the self help page for more information.
