Trash containers are picked up and emptied by extended arms on automated trucks. Be sure to leave a few feet of space between and around your trash and recycling containers. Containers placed too closely together do not provide enough room for the truck arm to reach, grasp, and return the carts. Place trash containers curbside no later than 6:00 AM on the day of pickup.
Keep containers on a hard, level surface clear of snow and other landscaping debris and no more than 6' from edge of curb.
Please allow containers a 3' perimeter of clearance from obstructions such as parked cars, trees, mailboxes and utility poles. There must also be a 15' over head clearance from any low hanging tree branches or power lines, etc.
If you have more than one container placed at the curb, please set them side by side with at least 2' of clearance between the containers.
Containers must remain upright for pickup.
Keep all materials inside the container.
Do not place containers back to back.
Keep container clear of obstructions.
