What kinds of trash do I put in my cart and what is prohibited?

Carts are for general household waste only. Putting toxic material in your container could result in a possible fine. Trash placed outside of the cart will not be collected except for the maximum 2 bags of trash. 

Bagged grass can be picked up for an additional charge of $1 per bag. Please do not put bagged or loose grass in your poly cart. Place bagged grass beside your poly cart on your regularly scheduled pick up day.
