Garbage Pick-Up
In accordance with Cowan City Code, all tenants are required to store garbage in study containers with lids and handles.  Please place garbage containers at street side on Monday night for Tuesday pick-up and then remove them from street side after pick-up.

If you would like to participate in Cowan’s recycling program, stop by City Hall to pickup blue bags so you can separate newsprint, paper, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles.  Curbside pick-up for blue bags is on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
