Curbside Cart Placement and Pickup
  • All residential carts are serviced weekly on weekly schedule, Monday through Friday—view the schedule
  • Garbage may be placed at your street curb at 4:00 p.m. the day before your scheduled pickup and no later than 7:00 a.m. the day of your scheduled pickup.
  • Garbage must be stored in metal or plastic containers with secure covers and handles.
  • Each container must weigh less than 50 pounds.
  • Garbage must not protrude from the container.
  • As a rule of thumb, if an item doesn't go in your recycling container and it is not a functional, reusable item that you can donate, it most likely goes into your garbage container.
  • Sample common garbage only items include: fused materials (granola bar wrappers, foil, candy wrappers), paper towels and tissues, food scraps, chip bags, latex gloves, Styrofoam, broken dishes, and drink boxes and pouches.
