Food Waste Recycling Drop-Off Site

The food waste drop-off site at 1525 Goodale Boulevard next to the former Service Facility has been moved around the corner to accommodate the construction of the new Fire/EMS, Police, and Administration Facility. The new food waste drop-off site is on Douglas Street behind 1481 Goodale Boulevard. The bins are available to drop off foodstuff 24 hours a day, seven days a week to any lined containers at your convenience. This service is being provided free of charge to residents.
