Please see the instructions below for proper trash collection and make sure your cart is pulled out to the curb the night before your scheduled collection day.

S&S will be using a new truck in the coming weeks and cart placement is key!!!  If you notice that your cart is left in a different spot (like across the street) after they have emptied it, that is where you will need to begin leaving it for the new truck.  If you have any questions, please give us a call at City Hall.  Thanks for your patience during this transition.  Also, please remember that your yard debris (normal weekly yard debris) should be left in the same place you have been leaving it.
