Please ensure the trash receptacles and the recycle cart are separated by at least three (3) feet, and three (3) feet away from obstacles such as mailboxes, fences, gas meters, and drainage ditches.

Recycling is serviced by Automated Side Load (ASL) trucks. ASL trucks must have adequate space in the street or alleyway for the truck to line up to a cart and allow for the truck’s arm and claw to extend to retrieve the cart. In order to protect your property, the driver will not service your cart(s) if vehicles or other obstacles are positioned too close to the cart(s). Important: please allow a 16′ vertical clearance to ensure there is no damage to property and carts can be serviced.
