The Planning Division is part of the Public Works Department team that helps to develop plans for managing household solid waste. The City waste management program includes weekly collection of trash and bi-weekly collection of recyclables. The City also operates a yard waste drop-off site at 105 East Chellis Street (located just three blocks south of Thomas Street and/or two blocks east of Cleveland Avenue) for use by City residents, collects leaves at curbside in the fall, and collects large bulky items during an annual "Large Item Pick-Up". Please note that the yard waste drop-off site is now equipped with security cameras to record unwanted and/or illegal dumping of materials at the site. There is a $200 fine for illegal dumping.
