How is a garbage cart used?
Residents must place all household trash inside the cart and wheel it to the curb for collection. Carts must be placed at least three feet away from mailboxes, trees or other carts or bulky waste so that the automated arm can grab, dump and replace it on the curb. Carts should not be placed on the street. Carts should be retrieved from curbside within 12 hours after collection.
