Proper Set Out
  • Containers must be accessible by 3AM on your collection day.

  • Make sure your containers are not overflowing and the lids are completely closed.

  • Ensure your containers are not blocked by vehicles and other obstructions such as extra garbage and bulky items on collection day. (If you have bulky items, contact Customer Service for pricing and schedule.)

  • Containers must be placed at least 5 feet away from vehicles and 3 feet away from poles, retaining walls and trees.

  • Flatten and break down cardboard boxes before placing inside your recycling container.

  • Debris placed outside your containers will NOT be collected.
