Proper Collection Day Set-Out

On your scheduled collection day, please set out your automated trash cart at street level with the arrows on the lid pointing toward the street. Only household trash placed inside the gray cart will be collected by PARK’s automated trash collectors. Green waste recycling cans should be set out a minimum of two (2) feet away from your trash cart(s).

Place waste and green waste recycling containers at the curb for collection. Avoid placing waste cans next to obstructions, such as parked cars, utility poles, etc. Please be careful not to place waste cans in areas of traffic, such as bike lanes, in order to avoid blocking paths of travel.
