Trash Pickup


Collection Program Guidelines

  • Trash and Recycling must be at curbside by 7:00 AM on your designated collection day
  • Please separate your recycle cart from your trash by 3 feet if possible so it can be easily identified by the collector
  • All trash must be contained in the cart issued by the contractor to be collected. No material left outside the cart will be collected. Bag all trash to prevent litter
  • Trash and recycle carts must be placed at the edge of the roadway with wheels facing away from the street. Do not place your cart within 3 feet of any obstruction.(trees, mailboxes, etc.)
  • No construction materials from renovation projects or wood of any kind will be collected
  • Recyclable materials are collected every week on your regular collection day.

Safe Use and Care of Cart

  • Always keep the lid closed to keep rain, snow, and animals out
  • Do not place any unacceptable materials in the carts such as paint, solvents, wood, hot ashes, sand, rocks, yard waste, etc.
  • Use the handle provided to move the cart. Tilt cart on wheels and roll. Remember to pull the cart uphill and push the cart downhill
  • Remove your cart as soon as possible after collection to maintain appearance of the neighborhood
  • To clean, simply rinse with water from time to time and let dry in the sunlight with the lid open
