Residential trash collection is $10/month with senior citizens (age 65 and older) being charged $8/month. Senior citizens may show proof of age and fill out a form at City Hall or the Utility Commission offices to receive the special rate. Businesses and non-profits will be charged based on the amount of curbside garbage or the number of times a dumpster is emptied per week. Curbside recycling is free of charge. Customers who contract with a private waste hauler must show proof of service at City Hall.
