Garbage placed outside the blue cart and carts that are too full will not be collected. See drop-off options below for excess waste disposal or sign up for curbside recycling to divert recycling materials from your trash can
Your garbage can be picked up earlier or later than the usual time, so please get to the curb before 6 a.m.
Additional trucks may operate in your neighborhood and may be of a different type than usual. Make sure the carts are properly positioned with arrows facing the street, five feet from any object, and free of overhead obstructions. Compliance with these guidelines allows any type of truck to recover your material.
Trucks may operate late in the evening beyond normal working hours
The collection of household waste and recycling may be delayed; in this case, it will also delay the normal garbage and recycling collections for the week. Any missed pickup will be completed the next business day. Please wait to report a missed pickup until 10 a.m. the next morning
