It is the aim of the Sanitation Department to keep the city clean of litter and maintain a healthy environment for all citizens. Garbage collection is picked up once a week from residents and done according to a routing system. The city is divided into 5 collection grids. Depending in which grid you live as to which day your refuse is picked up. Along with the garbage pickup there is a recycling service available to the citizens. That too is according to your pickup day.
