Placing the refuse & recycling cans can be a challenge for residents. To assure your cans are being emptied, please make sure you are following these simple rules. 1. Do not place your cans near any objects like parked cars, mailboxes or other obstructions. 2. Do not stack your cans one behind the other. 3. Make sure, when placing the can curbside the lid opens toward the street. Remember with an automated system, the drivers no longer get out of their trucks to empty the cans like the “old days”. If we work together and implement these simple rules it will facilitate your refuse and recycling is collected in a timely manner.
