How and where do I place my Garbage & Recycling Carts?
The wheels of the carts must face your home. Always leave 5 feet between your carts. Place your carts at least 5 feet away from mailboxes, parked cars or other obstacles. Residents should place all garbage in plastic bags prior to putting it in the cart but never bag your recyclables.).
