Sanitation Department Trash Tips

 Trash containers should be out for pick-up no later than 7:00 a.m. on your assigned trash collection day. 

  1. Place your container at the curb clear of power lines and tree limbs with the wheels of the cart facing toward the house. This placement will facilitate the proper dumping of the container and lessen the possibility of damage to the truck or container.
  2. If there are low hanging tree limbs near the area where you place your cart for service please make sure the limbs are trimmed to the 12' level required by city ordinance. This will allow the automated vehicles to complete service without damage to the truck or container.
