Bag It.

Properly bag, tie and place household waste in a container (drum, mesh receptacle or skip) for collection. Keep meat frozen until your collection day to minimize odor and decomposition. Dead animals should not be placed in your waste container!

Bin It.

Waste must be stored in areas easily accessible to our sanitation workers. Your storage receptacle should be placed at the front of the lot where it can be accessed without hindrances 24 hours per day by collection crews. Ensure that the bottom of your waste container is pierced. Lids for the receptacles are highly recommended.

We’ll Collect it.

Your solid waste containers should be structurally sound so as not to cause injury or pose any threats to the physical safety of our sanitation workers. .
