Preparing for Pickup

Garbage:

Your cart must be out at curbside by 7:00 AM on your scheduled collection day and no earlier than 7:00 PM the evening before. The cart must face towards the roadway. If placing on a sidewalk, leave enough space to walk between and around your carts so there is enough room for the automated arms on the trucks to work safely. Pull your cart back in by 7:00 PM.
