Curbside Green Waste Collection is Here for You!
Almost 4,000 residents are enjoying putting their yard and lawn trimmings, fruit and vegetable scraps, and leaves in a specially designed green waste bin for collection on their weekly collection day.
LET’S GET STARTED!
In order to get your green can delivered, please read the Green Waste Guidelines and then submit a request for a Green Waste Can.

We will begin service in mid-March, and end on the second Friday of December
(For 2016, March 14th until December 9th. For 2017, March 20th through December 8th.)
If you have any questions or concerns, please call our Sustainability Coordinator Jeffrey Sean Summerhays at (385) 468-6337. We will send you more information and keep in touch throughout the year with important dates and reminders.
The fees include a one-time, $60 start up fee and an annual fee of $114 for the nine months of collection. Those interested in second green cans still need to pay the $60 start-up fee, but all additional green cans are $36. This program is self-sustained through subscription fees and not subsidized with any other fees or tax dollars. There is no obligation to participate, since this is an optional service for those who want it and are willing to pay for the services. Interested participants may also sign up in 2016 with the same start up fee of $60 and an appropriate fee pending the month you sign up.
Please allow for your request to be processed and for our front office staff to contact you for payment options. If you wish to use a check, make sure to indicate that it is for the green waste curbside can.
