Frequently Asked Questions

How do I position my containers when I place them out for pickup? 
Place your trash and recycling containers side by side in the designated collection location. Please leave a minimum of 2 feet between containers and 5 feet between containers and parked vehicles or other obstacles. This allows the truck enough room to grab the containers without risk of damage.

Will both my containers be picked up at the same time?
No, they will be picked up at different times on the same day. We recycle the material in the recycle container and landfill the items in the trash container. Our operators work from 5:00 AM until the routes are completed.

Will my pick up day change on holidays?
No, holidays do not affect your trash and recycling pick up schedule.
