A few things that we would like you to
about your trash service
side pick-up - Place carts the night
before pick-up on the curb (not the
street) facing the street so that the
lid opens towards the street with space
in between so that the truck arm can
pick up the cart without knocking over
- If you have alley pick up make
sure your carts are placed on the proper
side of the alley for pick-up.
Carts on both sides of the alley will
necessitate the garbage truck making two
trips down your alley.
to make the cart empty better -Wet
grass placed into a green cart will
often not empty completely. The
wet grass sticks to the sides and to
itself staying in the cart.
Cardboard stuffed into the recycling bin
can do the same thing. Please make
sure items are loose so that they fall
out of the can when emptied.
Pictures of what NOT to do
Tires are not allowed in
curbside garbage pick-up. Tires can be dropped off at the annual Selma Community Clean-Up Events held in the Spring and Fall.
The container to the
right is not loaded properly. Branches must be cut down to a smaller size so
that they fit in the container and can be dumped. The truck cannot pick this container up
and empty it properly. It will likely cause a large mess.
Pipes such as these do not
belong in the recycling bin. They can be dropped off at one of the annual
Community Clean-up Events. The pipes are too tall. The truck
cannot properly pick up and empty the container because of the size of the
