FAQs

To guarantee pick up we recommend you place your container out at the curb by 6:00 AM. prior to pickup.

Placement of all carts at the curb is essential to insure collection by automated trucks. Place your trash cart on either side of your driveway, at the edge of the curb. Allow a minimum of six feet of clearance on all sides of the cart from objects such as cars, trees, fences, mailboxes, streetlights and other carts. Carts must be a minimum of six feet from any vehicles. Position your carts in a manner so that pedestrians can use the sidewalk. Place carts: Three (3) feet apart At least six (6) feet from cars, trees, mailboxes, fences Cart wheels as close to the curb as possible Cart lids opening toward street LIDS ON CARTS MUST BE CLOSED COMPLETELY When possible, trucks with robotic arms will lift, empty and replace the carts without the drivers leaving the trucks, reducing safety hazards and traffic congestion. Please remove all containers from the street as soon as possible after collection.

Computers, laptops, monitors, separated computer circuit boards and televisions contain heavy metals. They cannot be disposed of as garbage and must be recycled. You can also recycle many other electronic items, including computer peripherals (mouse, keyboard, cables, printer, scanner, speakers, etc.), cell phones, hand-held devices, photocopiers, fax machines, stereos, VCRs, and DVD players.

Fluorescent Bulbs and Tubes Require Special Disposal Do not put them in the garbage. Fluorescent tubes contain elemental mercury mixed with powder. Crushing tubes creates mercury vapor that is difficult to contain. Keeping lamps intact prevents mercury exposure. Fluorescent tubes are regulated as a federal universal waste. Universal wastes must ultimately go to a recycler or permitted treatment, storage, or disposal facility. Recyclers separate the tubes into their component materials - glass, metal, phosphor powder and mercury - so that these materials can be recycled or reused.
