GARBAGE DAY

  1. Put your Garbage bags in your tote and close the lid
  2. Set your tote at curbside location by 7:00 am
  3. Ensure your tote is placed on level ground, away from other objects
  4. Once your tote has been emptied, return it to your house or garage.

Proper Placement:

Where you place your tote is important. Our truck has a mechanical arm to lift and empty carts. We need the appropriate space to minimize damage to property.

Totes are for household garbage, please bag all of your garbage and NEVER put any hazardous materials, dangerous goods, heavy materials or bio-waste in your cart.

EXTRA GARBAGE: Your new tote holds about the same as 3 aluminum garbage cans full. If you have extra waste, keep it in a secure location until your next collection day.
