Placing your cart out for collection
When moving your recycling container, make sure the lid is closed. Then grab the handle and use the convenient “tilt and go” bar feature (between the wheels at the rear of the cart), to tilt the cart back slightly. Now, safely and easily push or pull the cart. The cart is designed to withstand dragging, however, for ease of use, tilt and roll! DON’T FORGET! Always close the lid before moving, and on inclines pull the cart uphill, push the cart down hill!
All of your trash, including your recycling cart, should be placed out at the curb by 6 a.m. on your scheduled collection day, but not before 6 p.m. on the preceding day. Your trash should be placed three feet from the roadway. Do not place trash in the recycling cart!
Always close the lid
Always keep the lid closed to keep animals, rain, snow, and ice out, and keep the refuse, recyclables and odors in. Do not place your cart close to obstructions such as mailboxes, utility poles, fire hydrants, or parked cars.
Remove your cart after collection
In order to help maintain the appearance of your neighborhood, please remove your cart promptly after having been serviced. If possible the cart should be stored inside of a garage. Be careful not to store your cart close to a furnace, fireplace, grill or other source of excessive heat. To clean, simply rinse with water from time to time and let it dry in sunlight with the lid open.
