On Pickup Day

  • Place materials at the curb by 6 am on your pickup day.

  • Place materials within three feet of the curb.

  • Place the container with the lid opening facing towards the street.

  • Do not use plastic bags, yellow recycling bins, plastic liners or containers not labeled for yard debris.

  • When using Kraft paper yard debris bags, try to avoid putting wet debris at the bottom of bag; keep bags in dry location until pickup day to prevent bottom from falling out.
