Trash is collected weekly, Monday-Friday, 6 a.m.-5:30 p.m. The collection day depends on where you live in the City. Trash must be set out at the curb or alleyway by 6 a.m. for pickup. To help prevent litter in our neighborhoods, please bag or wrap all loose refuse material before you place it in your trash container.
