Sanitation Cart Placement: 
  • To ensure that your trash and recycling cans are emptied, they must be placed out at the edge of the roadway the day before the scheduled collection service.
  • Trash collection typically begins at 3:00 a.m.
  • Trash must be inside cans and the lid must be closed.
  • Please place cans as close to the edge of the road as possible, with the lid opening facing the road.

The following cannot be placed into trash cans and will not be picked up: Oil, propane, paint, charcoal, yard waste, construction debris, or hazardous waste.

Trash or recycling placed outside of or on top of the cans cannot be collected.

Recycling guidelines:

    •    Pour or wipe out contents of cans and bottles before recycling.
    •    Please break down all boxes.
    •    Keep recyclable materials loose in the recycling receptacle (do not separate or bag).
    •    Do not leave recyclable materials outside of the recycling receptacle, or they will not be collected.

Cans must be removed from the edge of the roadway and placed next to your rental home as soon as possible on the same day of collection.
