  • Let The Rain Drain...

    Let The Rain Drain...

    It is against City ordinances to blow leaves and/or grass into the roadways, creeks or waterways. These actions can block storm drains creating the potential for standing water and street flooding. Republic Services will pick up unlimited yard waste for residential customers, and should be bagged separately from your regular trash. 

    Thank you for your help in keeping our roadways and storm drains clear.
