Set your can on your scheduled day by 7:00am for collection. All recyclables (paper, plastics, cans, etc.) will be collected once a week on your scheduled collection day.
What can and cannot go in the garbage?
For the safety of City Carting workers please remember to double-bag harmful products before discarding in your regular garbage, and please do not discard:
- Broken Glass
- Florescent Bulbs
- Cleaning Products i.e Bleach, Ammonia
- …and the like
Will you collect extra bags?
Always fill your cart first before putting out any additional garbage bags.
Your black cart can hold three to four standard-sized garbage bags. If your cart is full, excess bags can be set one foot away from your cart for collection at no extra cost. We recommend you use standard-sized garbage bags that are strong enough to hold the contents and weigh less than (40 pounds) each when filled. If you can easily lift the bag with one hand, it should be okay.
During periods of high volumes of garbage, such as spring and fall, we will collect waste in black carts but may limit the number of extra garbage bags that are picked up to ensure everyone gets service. If we are unable to collect your extra bags, please store them on your property until your next collection day.
Do I need to bag my garbage?
Garbage must easily fall out of the cart when tipped into the truck. You can choose whether or not to bag your garbage before placing it in the cart, with the following exceptions:
Wrap and place in puncture-proof containers.
Powders, dust and animal waste
Double-bag items and and tie them.
Put gravel, dust, rocks and other debris into a garbage bag. Double-bag and make sure it is under the (40 pound) weight limit.
Place in garbage bags to ensure it easily falls out of the cart when tipped. To reduce the amount of grass clipping waste going to the landfill and to improve the quality of your lawn, we suggest leaving your clippings on the lawn.
