CORRECT CURBSIDE SET OUT!

Ever wonder why your various recycle items are not picked up???  Look at this guide to see the correct way to set everything on the curb!
FYI:  "Place unbundled wood waste (including brush piles, tree limbs and wood waste) at the curb.  Trees cut down by contractors must be removed by the contractor.  Wood pieces and limbs should be no longer than 6 feet and weigh no more than 100 pounds.  Wood waste should be placed at the curb for pick-up."  (Click here for more information - including furniture, appliances, and tires)

NOTE:  Our garbage is collected on Mondays and Thursdays weekly. Our recycle day is Thursdays only - weekly.
Hint:  If you have a large amount of woody material to be picked up, call 311 a day or 2 prior to pickup & ask for the hydraulic truck!
