Where do I place my cart?
  • You are encouraged to bag and tie garbage before placing it in the cart.
  • Do not pack your cart so tightly that it will not empty.
  • Trash placed alongside the carts or in other containers will not be collected.
  • The arrows located on the lid and metal bar on the front of the cart should face the street, and handles should face away from the street.
  • The lid must be closed so that nothing can spill out during the emptying process.
  • Do not place anything on top of the lid, as the driver will not empty the cart.
  • Place the cart within two feet of the street and at least five feet from trees, cars, mailboxes, poles, other city containers, etc… or the driver will not be able to empty it.
  • All carts must be accessible and placed for collection by 6 a.m. on the day of collection. Inaccessible carts will not be emptied.
