Recycling

Make sure that lids remain closed -- it prevents blowing litter and proctects the contents from weather and pests.

Small Quantity Generators

(single family households and businesses with carts)

Cart Placement

Place your carts in the street with the wheels against the curb and the arrow on the lid pointing toward the street.  The lid must be closed.  Leave at least 1 1/2 feet between your trash, yard waste, and recycling containers so the automated collection equipment can easily pickup the containers.  As a courtesy, please do not park your car in front of containers.  If possible, park off the street on your scheduled service day. 


See diagram below for proper placement:
