Residents can recycle at the curb ($5.70/month), in area drop boxes (no charge) or at the local recycling center. If you have questions on recycling or would like to sign up for curbside service, call 942-7700.
Recycling at the curb is easy. The city provides you with one container to collect all recyclables (except glass) and picks it up from the curb every other week. Learn more about curbside recycling or
