New Garbage and Recycling Collection Program

Please remember that the new garbage and recycling collection program means that garbage will be collected weekly and recycling will be collected every other week. This means both garbage and recycling will be collected 12/27/17, only garbage will be collected 1/3/18, both garbage and recycling will be collected 1/10/18, and so on. If you have received carts and do not use them, your garbage and recycling will not be picked up on collection days. So, please remember to use carts for the 12/27/17 garbage and recycling collection and all future collection days.

On collection days, carts should be placed at the edge of the curb with at least three feet of space between the carts and anything else. 

The roughly 30 residents who have not received carts will receive them by the end of next week. In the meantime, only the residents who haven't received their carts should place bagged garbage and the smaller recycling bins at the curb for the 12/27 collection. A list of these residences has been provided to those who collect garbage and recycling. These residents will receive their carts by 12/29/17.

The larger 95-gallon carts can be exchanged for the 65-gallon carts one time only by contacting Columbia County Solid Waste. Please be sure to try the larger carts prior to exchanging for the smaller size. Residents have until February 28, 2018 to exchange carts. Contact information for Columbia County Solid Waste can be found on their website.

Additional information and the 2018 recycling calendar can be found on the Garbage and Recycling page.
