Cart collection

  • ​Carts can be placed on the street, unless street is busy or has bike lane, then place on the extension.

  • Put carts out the nigh​t before your scheduled pick up day with handles facing away from the street. 

  • Carts must be 3 feet apart, lids fully closed and without any trash or debris on top or around them (trash outside the cart will not be picked up).

  • Carts should be brought in by noon the following day.

  • In winter, keep carts free of snow, unburied from snow banks, clear of ice and accessible to collection trucks.

  • Never place carts on snow banks, instead shovel out a spot on the road or extension so the cart can sit level.

  • Carts must not exceed 224 pounds for the 64-gallon, 112 pounds for the 32-gallon or 336 pounds for the 96-gallon size. Carts over the limit will not be serviced.
