As of October 6, 2008, pickup service is automated carts for both your garbage and recycling. There will be one cart for each, and only the material inside the carts will be taken. One bulk item too large for the cart will be picked up per week. Your garbage will be picked up every week and your recycling will be picked up every other week. Please see the calendar below to make sure you put your recycling material out on the appropriate week. All recycling material i.e.; paper, cardboard, aluminum, plastics, etc. will be put in the cart. Just rinse the container out and place in the cart unsorted.
In order to effectively empty these carts, each one must be placed on opposite sides of the driveway with the wheels of the cart placed towards the house so the lid opens towards the truck. There must be a 3' clearance on each side of the cart so there won't be any interference with the arm that picks the cart up.
