There is no recycling pickup at this time. Regular trash is collected weekly on the normal days. You may use your blue AND green bins.  Citizens are asked to separate their refuse into three separate piles – 1) trees and shrubs, 2) building debris, and 3) appliances. Failure to do may result in no pickup up at all. We ask that you place them near the curb, not on the street, and that they not be covered or hamper access to meters.
