Collection Service Information
How can I help protect the drivers?
- Please place your carts out properly so they can remain inside their trucks. This means you place the carts on the curb 2 feet from each other, at least 5 feet from any obstacles (parked cars etc.) and with overhead clearance.
- Please ensure carts are not overfilled and that lids close completely.
Are you doing Bulky Item Pick-ups?
- As of May, we have resumed doing bulky item pick-ups. Please call us to schedule a bulky item pick-up.
Are you doing document shredding?
