Service Information & Guidelines
Proper Cart Placement
Place your carts at the curb with wheels facing your house the night before your collection day. Remove carts after collection. Keep your carts at least three feet from parked cars, mailboxes or other obstacles.
Why Automated Cart Collection?
Automated collection is safer and quieter for the community. Wheeled carts are easier to roll and place at the curb, and the attached lid helps keep trash from blowing into the street and recycling dry to make sure items get a second life as something new.
What Belongs in Your Cart?
Place common household trash such as food waste, chip bags, paper towels, plastic bags, and clothes too worn to be donated in your cart. Do not place construction waste, auto parts, tires, hazardous waste (paint, oil, household cleaners), or medical or e-waste in your carts.
Place clean and dry bottles, cans, paper and cardboard (break down your boxes) directly into your cart. One dirty item can contaminate an entire truckload, so make sure recyclables are clean and dry. Don’t bag your recyclables. Keep plastic bags out of your recycling.
