Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


1.   Why is The City doing a re-route for residential garbage and recycling collection?

The new routes are necessary due to current and projected growth south of 52nd Avenue South. Currently southside routes are much larger than northside routes, making it difficult to collect garbage and recycling efficiently. The new routes will allow Solid Waste to evenly distribute the workload and maximize the use of equipment and manpower.

2.   Will there be an additional cost to residents?

There is no proposed cost increase for the collection of residential garbage and recycling.

3.   How many homes will be affected?

Approximately 65-70% of single family residences will be affected.

4.   Will the hours of collection change?

No, all collections will be made between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. *As a reminder, all residents are asked to have their garbage out by 8 a.m. on their collection day
