Setting Out Your Carts

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ​​​

How to get rolling…

Starting November 1st, roll-out carts on your new collection day by 7 a.m. Please note collection times will vary for several weeks as routing is optimized.

​​

Sample Set Outs:


 

         


 

  • Face the front of the carts toward the street and handles towards your house
  • Place carts on level surface within eight feet of the traveled portion of the road, ensuring to avoid low hanging branches

  • Do not use bungee cords or other items to keep cart lids closed​

Special instructions for winter
  • When shovelling, clear a flat spot at the end of your driveway or at the curb for your carts
  • Place carts within eight feet of the traveled portion of the road, which ensures the automated arm can reach while allowing room for snow clearing​ equipment to pass
  • Don't place carts behind or on top of snowbanks​​​​
