Residential Waste Collection Guidelines

Please remember, when setting out your garbage, carts are to be placed so that the handles and wheels are facing resident’s home.

On each service day, the carts should be placed and returned at the curb and placed 4ft apart for easy access.

When filling up your trash carts, always place trash in a bag before depositing into your trash cart. This method will reduce the chance of trash flying out of the cart and onto the ground during the collection days, especially on windy days.
