Are there any 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 other 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 lid, as the driver will not empty the cart. 
  • All carts must be accessible and placed for collection by 7 a.m. on the day of collection. 
  • Inaccessible carts will not be emptied.
