Snowplow crews rely on residents' help to place garbage, recycling and yard waste carts behind the curb when it is trash pick-up day. Carts placed in the street interfere with snowplowing operations. Crews are unable to plow the streets from curb-to-curb when carts are in the street.
Carts must be placed behind the curb, such as on the driveway or in the boulevard.
Place your carts 2 feet behind the curb with at least 3 feet between your carts.
Waste haulers must place trash, recycling and yard waste carts off the roadwayonce they have been emptied. The carts will be placed on a homeowner's driveway, behind the curb.
Carts may be placed at the curb starting at 4:00 p.m. the day prior to collection day.
Carts must be returned to the proper storage location by midnight on the day of trash pick-up.
Carts placed behind the curb also help street sweeping operations in the spring and fall and snow removal in the winter.
