Are there tips on how to pack my garbage cart?

Here are a few tips and tricks to ensure your garbage cart gets serviced: 

  • You are encouraged to bag and tie garbage before placing it in the cart. 
  • Do not pack your cart so tightly that it will not empty. 
  • Trash placed alongside the carts or in unapproved containers will not be collected. 
  • The arrows located on the lid should face the street and the handles should face away from the street. 
  • The lid must be closed so that nothing can spill out during the emptying process. 
  • Do not place anything on top of the cart as it will cause the cart to become inaccessible.
  • All carts must be accessible and placed for collection by 7 a.m. on the day of collection. 
  • Inaccessible carts will not be emptied.
