Placing your compost roll cart and bin

  • Please place your compost roll cart within three feet of the curb.
  • Place the container with the lid opening facing towards the street.
  • After collection, please remove all containers from the street as soon as possible.

Tips to keep everyone safe and avoid fees:

  • Your regular service does not include extra cans, bags, or bundles in addition to your cart. These items may incur fees.
  • When using Kraft paper yard debris bags, try to avoid putting wet debris at the bottom of the bag. Keep bags in a dry location until pickup day to prevent the bottom from falling out.
