Getting your garbage ready for pick-up

Know the code! Make sure that you are following these practices when getting your garbage ready for pick-up:

  • All garbage must be wrapped or bagged. If one waste container is not large enough to contain all of your garbage, please call your garbage hauler for a larger or additional container.
  • Yard waste bags must be biodegradable in order to be picked up by garbage haulers. Please contact your garbage hauler to arrange for yard waste pick-up.
Garbage cannot be overflowing from your garbage containers

Not allowed
