With winter weather approaching, it’s time to plan for the placement of garbage and recycling carts during the next few months. While many residents can continue to set their carts in their driveway apron, some will want instead to clear snow from the terrace next to the driveway to make carts accessible for the collection trucks. This will be easiest if begun with the first snowfall. When planning for you cart placement, please remember:
- Place carts with at least 4 feet of clearance on the sides so mechanical arms can get to them.
- Do not place carts on a snowbank or more than 2 feet behind the curb, or the mechanical arm may not be able to reach them.
- DO NOT PLACE CARTS IN THE STREET, as that presents a hazard to drivers and bicyclists and interferes with parking, storm drainage, snow plowing and street sweeping.
Please also remember that if severe weather prohibits trash and recycling collection, the pick-up day will be delayed by one day for all residential pick-ups during the rest of that week.
