Note to our customers:  We encourage recycling as much as possible.  It not only saves you money, but helps the environment in many ways.  It also saves room in our dumpsters giving us more capacity to handle garbage, saving the county money and this will help keep our costs down.  So we appreciate all of your recycling efforts.  Thank you so much.

Garbage pick up service: The County does not provide pick up service.  However, we can provide you information if you would like this service, as there are several privately owned companies that operate in this and surrounding counties.
