What can I place in my trash cart?
Trash generated in the home should be bagged and tied closed before placing in the cart. Bags keep your cart cleaner and minimize odors. Please do not place hot coals or ashes, dirt or rocks, large bulk items, medical waste (sharps, syringes or prescription medications), hazardous waste or recyclable items in the garbage cart. Do not overfill the carts. The lids should remain closed to assure proper collection, help prevent windblown litter, and help to control odor and varmints. A good practice is to periodically rinse out your cart.
