🗑️🏋️ The weight of each trash bag or can not exceed 50 pounds. Please help us in this area. 32-gallon containers can get heavy very quickly, depending on the density of the contents. Please give us the courtesy of testing the weight of your cans. If they feel too heavy, please use another can or bag! Injuries to employees cost tax dollars. Overweight cans or bags will not be picked up.
🚫⚠️ Sharp items, broken glass, syringes, ceramic tile, etc., should be placed in a separate box, container, or trash can ONLY. The weight can not exceed 50 pounds.
👷🤕 Please check the integrity of your cans. Cans with jagged, sharp or cut edges, rotted bottoms, and/or no handles are safety hazards. Please replace these cans for safety's sake.
♻️💰 Household garbage should contain trash only. Please remember our community goals for reducing solid waste through recycling. The taxpayers' recycling cost is much less than for garbage sent to landfills.
📦⛔ Please do not put out trash or other items in cardboard boxes. Cardboard boxes are recyclable items and cannot be taken with household trash or used as a container. This will result in the box being left at the curbside.
☢️🚨 UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE SHOULD HOUSEHOLD TRASH CONTAIN HAZARDOUS WASTE ITEMS. This will result in your trash container being left curbside and could result in further action.
🪣🚫 Do not place full or partially full paint cans in your trash. Paint containers leak when compacted and drain onto the ground leaving unsightly residues on our streets. Paint must be dried out by mixing dirt, cat litter or sand into the paint and only when completely dried can they be put to the curb with the lids off for collection.
