Waste Management (WM) uses fully automated vehicles which results in stricter adherence to regulations. •No extra bags or loose debris can be placed outside of your trash or recycling totes. •All regular household trash, grass clippings and yard debris must be bagged and placed inside of your tote. •Materials may not protrude and the lid must close securely to prevent rodent access. •Totes should be placed at curbside by 6:00am on the day of collection. •Totes must be located within two (2) feet of the curb and with enough room for the hydraulic lift arm to operate. •If you live on the parking side of the street, please place trash and recycling totes on your driveway apron to prevent them from being blocked by vehicles as WM will not return if inaccessible the first time. •Waste Management will pick up ONLY TWO (2) bulk items per address monthly. Bulk items consist of:Furniture, carpet/padding (cut in 4’ lengths or less, no wider then 18” and securely taped)Box springs, mattresses, and toilets (which all must be wrapped in plastic or bagged).
