Recycling Carts and Bins

The Town provides residents with a 95-gallon roll-out cart for recycling. All items should be placed loose inside your cart for every other week curbside collection. Excess recycling can be taken to the Citizen's Convenience Center, 313 N. Dixon Ave., at no charge. Learn more about the proper use of your cart and how to order additional carts.

The Town holds year-round workshops and special events, including the Earth Day celebration each April and the America Recycles Day Shred event each November.
