Placement of new trash and recycling carts:
The cart is to be placed at the edge of the pavement or curb with the handles and wheels facing toward your house and the arrows on the lid facing the street. THERE SHOULD BE A 24” SPACE BETWEEN THE TRASH CART AND THE RECYCLING CART. The cart cannot be placed within 24” of any mailbox, utility pole, car, tree or other cart, and there can be no obstruction between the cart and the roadway. There shall also be no overhead obstructions within 12’. These clearances are required so that the automated arm can reach, grab, and dump the cart.
Disposal of your old trash and recycling containers:
Place the old containers to the curb on your scheduled bulk day with a sign “PLEASE TAKE”.
