Do Not Place Carts in the Street - and Other Winter Collection Reminders

We are working with Eureka Recycling and the garbage haulers to make sure they place carts back on the boulevard.  Help our haulers safely collect your recycling this winter and follow these Winter Collection tips, also found online at
