Cart Collection Page Content Setting out your cart Have your materials at the road/curb by 7 a.m. of your new collection day. Collection times may continue to change for some time while new routes are optimized Place carts on a level surface within eight feet of the traveled portion of the road, avoiding low hanging branches Remember the Rule of 2: Set out carts 2 feet apart, with 2 feet between your cart and any other objects Point the arrows on the carts towards the street and handles towards your house Do not over-stuff carts, fill loosely, ensure lid is fully closed Do not use bungee cords or other items to keep the cart lids closed Reviews from Cart Users Across the Province Download the App for general timeline alerts on when your neighbourhood will receive the carts!
