Important Rules for Trash Pick-Up
- Roll your cart to the curb for collection by 7 am
- Proper cart placement is extremely important. On your collection please roll your cart within two feet of the edge of the street by 7 am. Make sure the handles are facing your house so that when the cart is lifted, the lid opens towards the street. Please check to see that it is not obstructed by parked cars, boats, etc. The Post Master requires that the carts be placed far enough away from the mailbox so that the carrier can deliver without interference.
- You should not put concrete, large amounts of dirt, heavy waste, hot ashes or no paints or any hazardous liquids / materials. If you wish to request an additional cart you may order by calling the Utility Department at (254) 666-3151. There will be an additional monthly charge of $5.42 extra a month for each additional cart. The cart is designed to hold a maximum weight of 175 pounds. All of your bagged household trash and yard waste may be disposed of in your cart. Please bag loose items to prevent littering. Everything must fit inside the cart with the lid closed.
