Trash, recycling and yard waste will be collected at anytime between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. on your scheduled service day. All containers should be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. to ensure service.
You may put out your trash cart as early as 6 p.m. on the day before, however, to discourage recycling theft we recommend putting out recyclables the morning of collection.

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