Saturday collection will resume on Saturday, April 18.

During the winter months of January, February, March and the first half of April, yard waste will be collected on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for those residents along and south 13th Street. Residents north of 13th Street will have yard waste collected on Tuesday and Thursday.

The Resource Recovery Site is available for only residents in the city limits only (no contractors). Hours are 7 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Monday through Friday.
