Residential Garbage Collection 

Residential garbage is collected once a week from dumpsters in the alley and twice a week from 96-gallon, city-provided, curbside carts. 
For those who may find one garbage cart with twice-a-week collection inadequate, one additional cart can be requested. Fees apply.  
For your remodeling and construction needs, Roll-off dumpsters are available upon request. Fees apply. 
For more information refer to the Utility Rate Ordinance (link listed below under the LINKS tab) or call utility billing at 325-646-9700.
