All carts and materials need to be placed at the street by 7:00am and removed by 7:00pm on your collection day. Carts should be located 5 feet away from any obstructions, garbage cart, mail box, shrubbery, or anything that would otherwise prevent collection by automated trucks. The cart handle and wheels should face your house. Carts that are not properly placed cannot be collected. Loose materials that are placed outside of your container cannot be collected.
Holiday modifications to sanitation and recycling collection are posted on the City’s website homepage and are advertised in the Times News.
