What is acceptable household garbage?
Solid household waste consists of many items or products we use each day and throw away, like product packaging, food scraps, bottles, paper, batteries, and more. Liquid household waste includes kitchen cleaners, floor cleaning products, liquid laundry soap and detergent, cooking grease, and personal care products. Garbage must be bagged and consists of all normal household waste. Contents must fall freely from the container when dumped.

What is unacceptable garbage?
Yard clippings, dirt or sod, rocks, concrete, toxic materials, highly flammable materials, construction, and remodeling debris will not be accepted.

Will I have residential/ commercial waste pick-up on a holiday?
There is no collection on Thanksgiving and Christmas. If either holiday falls on your collection day, your waste/recycling will be picked up during your next scheduled collection day. 

When do I place my 96-gallon container out for collection?
Be sure to have your cart at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on collection day.

Where do I place my waste container for collection?
The preferred location for your 96-gallon container for collection is to make sure the container handle faces your house and the container is positioned at the edge of the paved traffic lane at least five feet from obstructions such as fences, and lamps posts, mailboxes, or vehicles. Do not block pedestrian access.

What if I have alley waste collection?
Your 96-gallon alley container must be placed behind your property in the alley with the handle facing your house. The container must be placed in the alley on your pick-up day by 7:00 a.m.
