Itemsthat should be set out for trash (i.e. construction or yard waste), unpreparedresidential medical waste (i.e. unprotected needles), bodily wastes,unprotected broken items that could harm crew workers (i.e. mirrors or glass),or hazardous wastes (i.e. fuels, liquid paints, fertilizers, etc.). No rocks ordirt should be place in your garbage cart.
All bags should be contained inside the cart. Any lose debris or garbage that is stacked on/around containers will not be picked up. Overfilling the containers or packing the containers too tightly, might prevent the garbage from falling out of the containers when the automated grabber arm is emptying the cart. The Solid Waste Division can only service city-owned containers. Prior to placing garbage into the carts, residents are encouraged to bag their garbage to aid in preventing of items from become airborne during the dumping operations. Bagging garbage will help keep lose items from littering our neighborhoods. All Styrofoam Peanuts are to be bagged or placed in a box with the lid taped shut.
