Where should I place my carts on my collection day?

Your carts must be placed either in the street with the wheels against the curb (preferred), at the end of your driveway or on the curb/yard beside of the street. If the placement of your carts in the street will obstruct traffic, then it should instead be placed at the end of your driveway, on the curb or at the edge of your yard beside the street.

Please make sure that the cart is level, the arrows on your cart’s lid points toward the street and your cart is at least three feet from all fixed objects such as mailboxes, trees, street lights or parked vehicles. Please leave a three foot gap between carts placed next to each other.

Please remember that all garbage and recycling must be placed inside of the provided carts to be collected. Any garbage and recycling outside of the containers cannot be loaded by the automated truck. All smaller items in garbage containers need to be placed into a sealed bag. Please note that if the lid on your cart is not closed, any garbage or recycling that falls outside of the cart will not be collected.
