Takin’ Out The Trash

Solid Waste, Roll-Out Dan_thumb

We are again talking about trash service this week. It can be confusing to know what is allowed in a Dumpster, so we’ve outlined some of those rules for you. First, City Manager, Randy Criswell, will address some topics about trash pickup. Check out the video below.

Dumpster or Roll-Out Bins

Items that are small enough to fit in the Dumpster and are not excessively heavy are permitted in the bin. For those areas that utilize the 95-gallon roll-out containers, this same rule applies, as long as the items fit in the bin.

Bulky Trash Items

For items that will not fit in a Dumpster, residents can place that behind their property for pickup. We ask that bulky items not be placed next to a Dumpster. That can cause issues when the Dumpsters are lifted and leave a mess in the alley. Bulky materials are defined as bags of grass, bags of leaves, do-it-yourself remodeling, “do-it-yourself” scrap fencing materials, tree trimming, junk furniture, and appliances. The list of bulky items is the same for the roll-out containers customers. However, bulky pickup for those areas will be on Mondays.

  1. I recently noticed my neighbors have been flinging their dog’s droppings over the fence, next to the dumpster, which makes for a really…unpleasant…trip to the dumpster to throw my trash away. Is this a violation of anything?

    1. Hi Alex! Thank you for your question. It is again City ordinance. Please call Code Enforcement at 655-5014 to report the issue.

  2. So glad to see the explanation about large bags of grass clippings. They don’t take long to fill a dumpster!
