  • Trash in individual offices is picked up on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays only.
  • Common area (restrooms, break rooms, etc.) trash cans are emptied every day. Please place food scraps in common area trash cans.
  • Recycling is picked up on Tuesdays.
The new schedule is designed to encourage more recycling and less waste. For your convenience, all paper, magazines, newspapers, paperboard, aluminum, and plastics may now be placed in your desk-side bins. For questions or more details about what may be recycled, please visit, or contact Haley Hix
