The cart is designed to hold a maximum of 175 pounds. All of your household trash and yard waste can be disposed of in your cart. Please bag loose items to prevent littering, especially on those windy days. EVERYTHING must fit inside the cart with the lid closed. This will avoid spillage. SORRY, WE CANNOT TAKE EVERYTHING.... For safety and health reasons, we cannot pick up the following items: demolition, construction, or building material like roofing, brick, dirt, etc. Trees, tree stumps, brush, and vegetation from building contractors, commercial tree trimmers, lawn services, sod, fill dirt, or any type of chemicals. NO HOT ASHES, PLEASE.
Please make sure the cart has at least three feet clearance from mailboxes, parked cars, gas, or water meters, etc. and that the handle is facing the house. If you recycle, please leave a three foot clearance between the trash cart and recycle cart.
