Garbage

Did you know you’re limited to five containers of garbage per week? Or that you need to put it out by 6am on collection day?

Special Waste

Motor oil. Tires. Antifreeze. These are just a few of the things you can’t get rid of via your garbage can or recycling bin.

Yardwaste

Mixing yardwaste with garbage is a no-no. There’s no limit to properly marked yardwaste, and it doesn’t count against your five-container limit.
