GOT EXTRA GARBAGE?
The City offers "stickers" for those times when you might have extra garbage. You are allowed 3 stickers each calendar year. If you have an extra bag of garbage, put a sticker on it and place it out next to your brown cart on your regular collection day and it will be picked up at no extra charge. You may pick up these stickers at the Finance Department (1001 W. Center Street) Monday-Friday 7:30 am to 5:00 pm. Additionally you may pick up extra garbage stickers at the Solid Waste office (210 E. Wetmore Street), between 7:00 am and 3:00 pm. Stickers are normally available beginning in late December for the next calendar year.
STILL GOT EXTRA GARBAGE?
The City offers a "Community Clean-Up" bin. This is a 2-cubic-yard bin that you can have delivered to your home, free of charge, for 24 hours. You can fill it with everyday household garbage. No concrete, dirt, auto parts or hazardous materials are allowed. This is also available to you once a year. Call 456-8440 for more information. (Calling in advance is always good, because this service gets booked quickly and may not be available on the day that you need it.)
