Annual Trash Decals

An alternative to individual trash stickers is the annual trash decal. Annual trash decals are available for 32-gallon, 50-gallon, 64-gallon and 96-gallon containers. A decal must be purchased for each container you plan to use. The decals will bear the address for which they were purchased and may not be used at any other address.

*Decals may only be purchased from the Treasurer’s Office in the Lobby of City Hall or by filling out the required forms (see below):

Weight Limits

  • Full 32-gallon containers must not exceed a weight of 50 pounds. 
  • Full 50-gallon containers must not exceed a weight of 75pounds. 
  • Full 64-gallon containers must not exceed a weight of 100 pounds. 
  • Full 96-gallon containers must not exceed a weight of 150 pounds.

Prorated Prices 

Annual trash decals are renewed in June of each year. Decals may also be purchased at any other time of the year, at prorated prices (effective July 1, 2016):

Purchase Month32-Gallon50-Gallon64-Gallon96-Gallon

July 1st Through September 30th





October 1st Through December 31st





January 1st Through March 31st





April 1st Through June 15th





The price listed for April 1st to June 15th indicates a purchase of the decal expiring on June 30th of the same year, not a purchase of the decal for the upcoming year. Decals for the upcoming year may go on sale prior to June 15th and in that case, may be purchased at full price. After June 15th, only decals for the upcoming decal year may be purchased.

If you should move during the decal year, you may return your old decal and obtain a transfer decal for your new address for a fee of $5.

If your decal is lost, stolen, or accidentally destroyed, you may obtain a replacement at the Treasurer’s Office and paying a replacement fee of $5.

Quarterly Downtown Merchant Decals

For businesses located in certain downtown areas, quarterly decals are available for 96-gallon trash cans. Quarterly decals are renewed every three months and run for the following periods:

  • January through March
  • April through June
  • July through September
  • October through December

The price for the 96-gallon decal is $491.40. For customers utilizing daily pickup, this provides a discount from the individual sticker price.
