Utility Information

Trash Pickup/Recycling

City residential trash pick-up is done by GFL Environmental USA Inc.  We operate on a tag System where you provide your own cans, and purchase tags from local banks and grocery stores.  Your pick-up day is determined by your address. On your pick-up day, you simply tag each can you are disposing of and place them on the curb. 

The City does not sell garbage tags.  Smith Sanitation is a private company that should be contacted directly with questions, such as day of pick-up, cost of tags, etc.

Recycling information, prices for tags, locations to purchase tags and a pick-up day map can be found HERE.
