The County has a full user pay system for garbage. There is a fee for every bag of garbage picked up at curbside. This system encourages people to practice the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and gives them some control over how much they want to spend on their garbage each week.
There are two sizes of user pay bags available at many locations throughout the County.
Any item which does not fit within a closed user pay bag will not be collected. Larger items may be taken to any County waste facility (waste fees apply).
Collection is provided every week in urban areas and every other week in the rural areas.
Collection is provided from Tuesday to Friday each week.
An alternate collection day is provided if your regular collection day falls on a statutory holiday.
