Per the City of Hometown Municipal Code all residents must
maintain garbage service through the contracted company. This eliminates the problem of garbage piling up and causing rodent infestation. Any resident not maintaining garbage service is subject to a local ordinance violation which is a must appear violation subject to a fine of $50.00 to $1,000.00.
Residential customers receive once a week garbage curbside collection and every other week curbside recycling collection. Garbage and recycling must be at the curb no later than 7:00 am on collection days and removed from the curb by 4:00 pm the day of collection. There is a E-Waste trailer in the City Hall parking lot which is open from 8am to 3 pm daily and 8am to noon on Saturday.
Each resident is supplied with a 95-gallon cart for trash and a 65-gallon cart for recycling. The trash carts are blue with blue lids the recycle carts are blue with green lids. If a resident wishes to have additional carts for trash, they can rent them from Republic Services at an additional rental charge.
Yard waste service is provided beginning April 1 through November 30. Residents can place yard waste at the curb in either paper yard waste bags or cans no larger than 30-gallons in size with YARD WASTE ONLY stickers on them.
