What Day Is My Collection?

The north/south boundary is Greenleaf Street and the east/west boundary is Kostner Avenue. See map.

Residents concerned about this transition are encouraged to use the next few months to review their refuse habits. The EPA estimates that 75 percent of the American waste stream is capable of being recycled or composted.
