recycling bin, paper cart, and trash canMonday, July 4, 2016, Independence Day: No County-provided recycling or trash collections on July 4; all pickups that week slide by one day. Transfer Station closed July 4. See holiday details

To help avoid mosquito breeding: Store your recycling bin out of the rain. Though the bin has drain holes, dump out even small amounts of water. Do this weekly. See more mosquito tips.
