Winter Cart Placement

  • Shovel a safe and accessible pathway to your carts from your street or alley.
  • Leave two feet of space between your carts and other objects, such as trees, fences, garages, or snow piles. 
  • All materials must fit inside your cart with the lid closed.
  • Place your carts at the edge of the alley or curb with the opening facing outwards by 6:00 AM on your collection day.
  • Do not place your carts on top of or  behind a snowbank, or in water, where it could freeze to the ground. 
  • do not put your cart in the street. This can interfere with plowing.
  • If you have an alley, make sure house numbers are posted on your garage.
