During the COVID-19 pandemic, trash and recycling pickup will continue, but bulk pick up is on pause. Beginning March 23, citizens residing in locations with backyard services will need to move their materials to the curb for collection. Public Works is also currently unable to accept any new Curbside Assistance (aka Red Flag) citizens until further notice.
