Helpful Hints for Garbage Collection

  • Make sure your container is out by 7am on collection day
  • Bag all loose trash...BAGGED TRASH STOPS LITTER
  • Place the container close to the street, so the truck can reach it, away from all obstacles. Trash will not be picked up if set too close to any obstacle.
  • Do not "JAM" trash into the container. This can prevent the container from being completely emptied
  • Trash piled high in the container can fall out as the truck picks it up. Anything that falls out will be left
  • NO WOOD OR METAL! This can damage the truck
  • NO TREE LIMBS. Take any limbs to the city yard wood pile, or place limbs next to the curb...see Limbs
