Free Landfill Days

Many items will be accepted for free at the city landfill on Moccasin Mike Road on Saturday, April 27 and Saturday, May 4.  The landfill will be open from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. those days.

Items accepted for free include household trash, brush, and up to four tires 18" or smaller.

More information is available at

Rubbish and brush collection

City crews will begin their annual pickup of brush and items too large to fit in trash bins on April 29. Crews will pick up brush and rubbish on different schedules over a four-week period.

Brush should be placed on the boulevard/street side of the house.  There are limits to the amount of brush that crews will pick up; check the city website for the rules.

Meanwhile, other items should be placed in the alley where garbage is normally picked up. Items that will be collected include furniture and large toys, but consider whether the item can be donated to a charity before placing it out for disposal.

The schedules for the two collections, as well as regulations and lists of what will and won't be picked up, can be found at
