Curbside Placement and Cart Use Instructions

Place the cart one foot from the curb or edge of the street. Garbage should be bagged and tied, then deposited in your cart. This practice will keep your cart cleaner. Please place your cart at least three feet from any tree, pole, fire hydrant, etc., and at least five feet away from any cars parked in the street so the automated arm can reach your cart.
