Environmental Services

The city's Environmental Services Division supervises the city's contractual solid waste and recyclables collection services and serves as a liaison to commercial entities serviced by the city's franchised commercial solid waste service provider. Environmental Services also provides numerous public education programs on recycling and environmental concerns, manages the city's spring and fall cleanups, administers the household hazardous waste and electronics collection program and the city's Adopt-A-Street program.

Recycling Contamination

For decades, Americans have been steadily embracing the concept of recycling as a means to help keep the environment clean, preserve resources, and beautify their communities. Times, however, are changing. As a result, it has become more important than ever for customers to adhere to recycling best practices such as keeping contaminated items out of the recycling stream.
