Residential Garbage Collection

General Instructions (check with district):

All trash service levels include one 96 gallon trash waste cart. Trash carts will be serviced on a weekly basis.

Set-Out Time

To guarantee pick up we recommend you place your container out by 6:00 AM. on your collection day.

Container Placement at Street

Placement of all carts at the curb is essential to insure collection by automated trucks. Place your trash cart on either side of your driveway, at the edge of the curb. Allow a minimum of six feet of clearance on all sides of the cart from objects such as cars, trees, fences, mailboxes, streetlights and other carts. Carts must be a minimum of six feet from any vehicles. Position your carts in a manner so that pedestrians can use the sidewalk. 

Place carts:
Three (3) feet apart
At least six (6) feet from cars, trees, mailboxes, fences
Cart wheels as close to the curb as possible
Cart lids opening toward street

When possible, trucks with robotic arms will lift, empty and replace the carts without the drivers leaving the trucks, reducing safety hazards and traffic congestion. 

Please remove all containers from the street as soon as possible after collection.
