Streets & Sanitation
The Town has provided each home with a 95 Gallon container; if your home does not have one, please call the Street Dept. at 246-3821 Ext. 4. All garbage and bags must be placed in this container. Sanitation employees will not collect anything placed on the ground. The only exception, if you have cardboard boxes, you may break them down and bundle them. Do not place trash in boxes. Cardboard should be placed out for the recycling program. Trash containers should be placed at the curb for collection. Also please do not mix yard waste (vegetative material such as flowers, sticks, grass, etc.) with garbage. We cannot pick up mixed containers. The landfill will not accept yard waste.
Clark County Solid Waste provides a recycling service every other week. If you have any questions about recycling call 256-7942. They will be happy to assist you.
The Street Dept. collects Yard Waste on recycling days. Vegetative material can either be placed in Two (2) 32 gallon cans, clearly marked YARD WASTE on the side of the cans, (Stickers are available at the Town Hall) or Three (3) biodegradable paper yard waste bags. There is a Two (2) can or Three (3) -bag limits per pick-up. Yard Waste is vegetative material only. DO NOT PLACE DIRT, ROCK, CONCRETE, ANIMAL WASTE, TRASH, and PLASTIC, OR ANY OTHER NON- VEGETATIVE MATERIALS in yard waste containers. Any of these materials will result in non-collection. Please be aware of the weight of containers because the collection crew manually handles them. Limbs should be bundled in 4-5 ft. lengths tied securely with baling string or cord. There is a limit of Two (2) bundles per pickup. Up to 15 larger limbs, with a diameter no larger than 3 inches, may be placed at the curb with the cut end toward the street. Residents with more yard waste may dispose of it at the compost site in Charlestown; call 256-4760 for directions and information, or Earth First on Hwy 403 (248- 0712). In the fall, the Town provides leaf pickup on a weekly basis, beginning around mid- October; leaves must be placed in paper bags and placed at the curb. There is no limit to this service, but we encourage mulching: or composting leaves, if at all possible. This service terminates in December. Christmas trees will be picked up following the holidays. Place them at the curb on regular trash pickup days. No PLASTIC BAGS PLEASE.
The Town no longer provides a "white goods" or trash pickup for large items. Residents must haul or dispose of these items themselves or contact a local hauler for this service. In the spring, summer and fall the Town will provide dumpsters at the waste water treatment plant located at 701 Bean Road, for yard waste and trash. Watch local newspapers for information.
