Just roll your cart to the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day. The cart is emptied mechanically from inside Republic Services’ vehicle cab. The driver uses a joy-stick, much like those used in video games, to operate the automated arm that picks up the cart and empties the trash into the truck. The cart is set back on the on the curb and the Republic Services truck moves on to the next stop.
Be sure your cart is out at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day to ensure collection. Or, you may set your cart out after 7 p.m. the night before your collection day. Carts must be removed from curbs or public rights-of-way by 9 a.m. the morning following your collection day.
Proper cart placement is extremely important! Please roll your cart within two feet of the edge of the street. Make sure the handles are facing your house, so that when the cart is lifted, the lid opens toward the street. Please check to see that the cart is not obstructed by parked cars, boats, etc. The post master requires that the carts be places far enough away from the mailbox that the carrier can deliver the mail without interference.
The cart is designed to hold a maximum weight of 175 pounds. All household trash and yard waste must be bagged and can be disposed of in your cart. Please bag everything placed in the cart to prevent littering. Since the cart is mechanically emptied, the driver never leaves the truck. The cart cannot be emptied if trash is on top of or next to the cart. Everything must fit inside the cart with the lid closed.
Do not put concrete, large amounts of dirt, or heavy waste in your cart. Do not put hot ashes in your cart. Do not put paint or hazardous liquids/materials in your cart.
