Why is my garbage/recycling sometimes missed?

There could be a few reasons:

1. We will not pick up your garbage if you have placed recyclables in the container.

2. If your garbage or recycling polycarts are placed too close to other objects, we may not pick them up. They must be placed a minimum of 4 feet away from each and any other object.

3. Garbage and recyling must be placed curbside by 6 a.m. on your day of pickup, or the night before.

4. Garbage and recycling must fit inside of their polycarts with the lid closed.

5. Polycarts must not be placed where vehicles may park and block access to it. If polycarts cannot be reached, they will not be picked up.
