How to use  your green waste cart:

  • No plastic bags; place yard waste materials directly in: pine needles, grass clippings, pine cones, branches, shrubs
  • On your collection day, place your cart curbside by 6 am, with the wheels facing away from the street. The cart must be 3 feet apart from other objects. (see diagram below)
  • A max of 3 carts will be serviced at each household. Borrowing a neighbor’s cart? Please do not roll it to be serviced at your property. Carts will only be serviced at the household they belong to. 
  • Serviced May – November, every-other week
  • Never miss a pickup: set up e-mail reminders.

Please note that the green bag program ended June 30, 2018 for all residents; green bags will no longer be collected free of charge.
