The following is information that you want to know and information that you should know about your trash service.
A few things that we would like you to know about your trash service
- Curb 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 other carts.
- Alley pick-up - 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.
- Hints 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 to Do & What NOT to do:
DO place only green and yard waste in your cart. Your green waste cart has a green lid.
This includes: grass, leaves, pruning’s, tree trimmings. Limbs and branches should be cut to fit within the cart itself.
DO NOT place plastics, trash and other non-organic items in your green waste cart.
DO place common household recyclables in your recycle cart. Your recycle cart has a blue lid.
Common household recyclables include: newspaper, mail, aluminum cans, plastic bottles, cardboard, mail and glass bottles. Please be sure your recyclables are clean, dry and un-bagged.
DO NOT contaminate or overfill your recycle cart. Common contaminants include; food scraps, plastic bags and film, yard or green waste, wood, Styrofoam, soiled food containers.
DO NOT place tires, paint or batteries of any size or type in your carts, ever. These are hazardous materials that require special handling. Local resources for safe disposal of these common items are available locally at hardware stores and other outlets.
If you need further information on where to dispose of these or other hazardous items, please refer to:
