Garbage Guidelines

Do Not Put in Garbage

Curbside Garbage


Containers Out by 6:00 am

Waste Management carts are required for all collection to make service safer and more efficient.

Collection times may vary as routing schedules change, and so it is very important to have all containers at the street by 6:00 am. We appreciate your cooperation.

Please remove all containers from the street as soon as possible after collection.


Container Placement at the Street

Place carts:

  • Three (3) feet apart
  • At least three (3) feet from cars, trees, mailboxes, fences
  • Cart wheels as close to the curb as possible
  • Cart lids opening toward street

    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.


  • Weight Limit 55 Pounds (Overweight containers will not be emptied)
    • Cans, bins, bundles and carts up to 32-gallon size are lifted and emptied by hand. For your safety and the safety of your collectors, please limit each 32-gallon unit to no more than 55 pounds.
    • Larger carts are lifted mechanically, and are limited to 180 pounds.
