What do I put in my garbage cart and how often is it collected?
Household garbage should be bagged before placing in the cart. Bags will keep your cart clean and minimize odors. Do not put hot ashes or coals, recyclable items, household hazardous waste, and medical waste in the garbage cart. Do not overfill the carts. The lids must remain closed to prevent littering, allow for automated collection, and help to control odor and varmints. Residents are not allowed to reload the cart for additional service on their collection day. You should occasionally hose out your cart.
