[ARCHIVED] Trash and Recycling Cart Placement Reminder

Republic Trash Cart FallWith winter on the way, we want to remind residents about proper trash/recycling cart placement in anticipation of snow removal operations. City code requires carts be placed in your driveway, one foot back from the curb line, and not in the street or right-of-way. There’s no need to worry about large snowbanks by your driveway. Refuse trucks have telescoping arms that can reach your container over three feet into your driveway.

Unfortunately, these arms aren’t super coordinated, so place your containers at least three feet apart from one another on days of dual trash/recycling collection. Be sure to have your carts out by 6:00 a.m. on your collection day as well, staffing shortages have caused changes in routes and pickup schedules, so please be aware.

Be sure to bring your carts up by 7:00 p.m. on your collection day, and please be sure you’re storing trash/recycling cans out of sight (in a garage, behind a privacy fence, etc.).
