Cart Tips 101

 

Garbage:

  • Garbage cart should be used for household garbage only.
  • Bag and tie all household garbage before putting it in the cart.
  • Place your cart curbside with the opening facing the street.
  • Cart should be on the opposite side of the driveway from your mailbox to avoid any damage.
  • Additional Items to be collected maybe located next to the cart.
  • Please do not block your cart with your car.

Single-Stream Recycling:

  • All your recyclables (paper, plastic, metal, cardboard and glass) go into your recycling cart.
  • DO NOT mix garbage with recyclables.
  • Place your cart curbside with the opening facing the street.
  • Cart should be on the opposite side of the driveway from your mailbox to avoid any damage.
  • Items not inside the recycling cart will not be collected.

YOU MUST MAINTAIN A DISTANCE OF AT LEAST FOUR FEET SPACING BETWEEN THE RECYCLING CART AND THE GARBAGE CART.

Yard Waste:

  • We recommend using your old garbage container for yard waste, no larger than 40 gallons. 
  • Place leaves, pine needles and yard clippings in a garbage container, plastic bag or cardboard box.
  • Cut branches to four-foot lengths, no wider than six-inches in diameter and not over 50 pounds.
  • Hired landscaping, land clearing or tree trimming services must remove any material that they generate.
