Collection carts

Each home should have three carts:

  • Brown: For garbage, either a 35-gallon or 65-gallon 
  • Green: For green/yard waste & food scraps, 65-gallon only
  • Gray: For recycling, 65-gallon only 

Confused about what is recyclable or compostable? Refer to the guidlines for more on what goes where.

  • Carts must be placed curbside by 5:00 a.m. on your regular pickup day. Find your pick up day here
  • Place the carts three (3) feet apart from each other, as it keeps wild animals from getting on top of one cart and flipping another lid open. 
  • Carts must be stored out of public view within 24 hours of collection. 

We reserve the right to refuse service should the following apply:

  • Carts are filled with items other than those designated to it's color (e.g., recycling in the green cart or garbage in the gray cart).
  • Carts contain any of the following: dirt, rocks, cement, construction materials, paint cans, anything vehicle realted or hazardous waste.
  • Carts are blocked by a vehicle, another object, or are otherwise inaccessible.
  • Carts are overweight. The weight limits are 70lbs for 35-gallon and 100 lbs for 65-gallon.
  • Carts are overflowing and lid is not completely closed.
