Set out household trash and recyclables in plain view adjacent to the curb line or edge of the road after 8 p.m. on the night before your scheduled trash pick up or before 6 a.m. on your Trash Day. You may use three 30-gallon trash cans or clear trash bags. Maximum weight per container is 50 pounds.
All other trash must be properly separated.
Recyclables will be collected the same day. Cardboard boxes MUST be uncontaminated, flattened, cut up, and set in or next to the Blue Bin. DO NOT PUT TRASH IN BOXES. There will be no limits.
