What is a Curb Cart and how is it collected?
General Curb Cart Recommendations
• Please place the cart at least 4 feet from any tree, pole, fire hydrant, etc. and at least 10 feet away from any cars parked in the street so the automated arm can reach your cart.
• Do not over load the container. If the lid is not closed, garbage will be subject to wind and nuisance animals.
• Please do not lean anything against the container.
• Remember to place the arrows on the lid of the container toward the street and the handle toward the house.
• Your container should be placed curbside no later than 7:00 a.m. the day of collection. The emptied container should then be promptly removed from the curbside.
• The emptying of your Curb Cart is guaranteed ONLY if placed curbside on the correct day and time. We can’t be everywhere at 7:00 a.m. but we can be anywhere and that may be in front of your house.
• Yard waste and any household hazardous waste must NOT be placed in the cart. State law requires that we do not mix yard waste, which is compostable, in the cart with garbage.
• Do not put dirt, sod, or rock in the container.
• Do not put flammable material such as oil, gas, paint or “hot ashes” or “coals” in the cart.
• Do not put Muriatic acid and other pool supplies/chemicals in the cart. These can cause chemical reactions in your cart and in our trucks leading to fires and dangerous toxic fumes.
• Do not put concrete, debris from construction, remodeling or demolition in the cart.
What do I do if I have more trash than the new Curb Cart holds?
How do I dispose of chairs, couches or furniture that will not fit into the Curb Cart?
Prepare your recycling materials according to the information provided in the informational flyer. Place them in the recycling bin, and place the bin out at the curb on the same day as your refuse and yard waste. Remember the more you properly recycle means the more natural resources you will save in addition to saving room in your Curb Cart.
Yard Waste Collection
Yard Waste begins the first full week of April (on your refuse pick-up day) and is collected separately on the same day as refuse and recycling. Remember it is state law that all compostable material be separated from refuse. Yard waste may be placed in a trashcan clearly marked “yard waste” or placed in kraft paper yard waste bags. Remember that cans or bags may not exceed 32 gallons in size or 50 lbs. in weight. Yard waste collection ends the first full week of December (on your refuse pick-up day).
If any of the holidays listed below fall on a weekday your pick up will be delayed by one day.
New Years Day Labor Day
Memorial Day Thanksgiving Day
July 4th Christmas Day
