Waste Collection Reminders to Avoid Missed Collection

To help ensure collection crews remain healthy, all waste should be bagged and securely tied.

Loose garbage bags or garbage bags in cans at the curb will not be collected if they are not tied.

Maximum weight per bag is 50 lbs.

As a reminder, ashes (i.e. cigarette butts, cigars, and fire pit ash) need to be separately sealed in a bag and placed in waste.

Please ensure these items are completely extinguished before placing in the garbage.

As well, napkins, paper towels and tissues are NOT recyclable.
