Sanitation

The Sanitation Dept collects residential and commercial garbage.  We service over 4,000 customers on a weekly basis. Every household should have a 95 gallon trash cart on wheels.   If you do not have a cart, you can purchase a trash cart at the Utility Office at City Hall.(Call: 325-6776)The trash cart should be rolled out to the curbside the night before or early morning of your scheduled pick up day. If your scheduled trash route falls on a holiday, it will be picked up on the next working day.

The City of Portland has purchased a sidearm trash truck, the following video shows an example truck and how it operates.
