Trash & Recycling collection: Waste Management has changed to the automated tote collection will start the first week of May. Please note: Our collection day has changed to Fridays, starting May 6th. There are separate trucks for garbage, recycling and large items, so if one stops and not everything is picked up, keep the remaining items out for the next trucks to come by.
Recycling is collected every other week. If you live east of, but not on Rt. 77, your recycling will be collected May 6th (Green.) Those living on Rt. 77 and to the west, your recycling will be collected the following Friday (Gold.) A list of streets and which week it is collected is located on this website under Forms & Information. A calendar has also been mailed out showing the alternating green and gold weeks for the year. If you have any questions, you can go to the County's website - www.wyomingco.net and check out the curbside collection site under County News.
