To ensure collection, all District provided carts must be placed street side by 6:00 a.m. on collection day. Carts are to be placed at least three (3) feet from any obstruction such as other carts, mailboxes, vehicles, fences, etc. with the handles facing the house.
Material collection: Recycling should be placed loose in the cart. No plastic bags. Cardboard boxes should be broken down and placed inside the cart.
