Changes to Refuse Collection

Posted on April 6, 2020

Dear Residents,

We would like to make you aware of some upcoming changes as it pertains to refuse collection.  The information below will be included in upcoming communication from Kimble, the City’s refuse service provider.

Effective, Monday April 13, 2020 Kimble will be implementing the following changes:

  • Solid Waste: Please fit all materials into the Kimble provided waste cart leaving no materials on the ground to be loaded by hand.  Collection will occur as usual.
  • Recycling: Please fit all recycle items in the Kimble provided recycle cart, leaving no materials on the ground to be collected by hand. Include only clean paper, cardboard, metal cans and #1 and #2 plastic containers and jugs. (See website at for acceptable recyclable items.)  Collection will occur as usual.
  • Bulk items: Please temporarily hold bulk items that require hand loading, such as sofas, mattresses, appliances, toilets and other bulky items.  Items that can be broken or disassembled and placed in the Kimble waste cart, will be collected.
  • Yard Waste: As a non-essential waste stream, we ask that you suspend placing yard waste at the curb in excess of what fits in the Kimble waste cart.  Please consider options such as, composting, taking the materials to a community collection point, or holding until a later time.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these unprecedented times.
