There has been some complaints from citizens about the garbage that accumulates on the street and in yards after the garbage containers are emptied. The garbage truck driver is not required to get out of the truck at any time during collection.  Therefore, it is up to you to make sure that your garbage is secured in the containers to keep it from collecting in the streets and yards.  Here are a few helpful hints:

Make sure your container is out by 7 am on garbage collection day.  Tuesday for residential customers.  Monday, Wednesday and Friday for commercial customers
  
Bag all loose paper and trash.  Although this is not a requirement, it is a strong suggestion.  Loose paper and trash can easily blow in the wind.  “BAGGED TRASH STOPS LITTER”.  IF YOUR TRASH IS LEFT ON THE GROUND, YOU CAN BE CHARGED WITH "ILLEGAL DUMPING"

Place the container close to the street so the garbage truck can reach it.  Please leave adequate spacing between your container and fences, vehicles, mail boxes, etc.  Setting your container too close to obstacles can prevent your garbage from being emptied

Do not overstuff your container.  Trash that is jammed in the container can prevent the container from being emptied entirely.  Trash that is piled high in the container can fall off as the arms are lifting the container and will be left on the ground

Do not put wood or metal (construction debris) in the container.  These items can damage the truck and will prevent your garbage from being collected.
