Solid Waste Collection Schedule Update

The City of Perry is committed to increasing efficiency and delivering the highest quality services, while exploring new operational and administrative strategies that will allow us to make the most efficient use of our resources.  On October 27, 2014, the City implemented a "4 n 1" solid Waste collection schedule in which garbage, recycling, yard trimming and bulk waste will be collected on the same day.  This schedule will allow for a concentrated effort in a given area, reduce carbon emissions and reduce missed pickups
