City-wide Garbage Pick-Up is provided by a private collector and paid for with tax dollars.
Garbage is picked up every Tuesday. Waste receptacles should be curbside by 7:00 AM.
- Residents must provide their own curbside garbage containers.
The City notifies residents by email, signage at City Hall and the mail center, and the City website of changes to the garbage pick-up dates due to National holidays or significant weather issues.
Effective 1 January 2016, the ONLY holidays that Waste Connections (Baneberry’s solid waste collection contractor) will be closed and not servicing its municipal customers will be on Thanksgiving and Christmas days. If one of those days falls on a weekend, there will be no service day change. If the holiday falls during the week, then service will be one day later. The contractor says this will be a permanent change for all future years.
Garbage collection may be disrupted due to weather or equipment difficulties. However, this is rare and the service provider collects garbage as soon as possible after such incidents.
Rather than calling the service provider, please call the City Hall to discuss or ask questions about garbage pickup.
