What time does trash collection start?

Trash collection starts at 5:00 a.m. Make sure to have your bins on the curb by then.

Place carts at the end of the driveway with arrows pointed toward the street and at least 4 feet from each other and from obstacles such as mailboxes, trees, and street lights. This placement allows the mechanical arm of the truck to pick up and empty the carts easily. If your home does not have a driveway, place the carts on the grassy boulevard strip
