Getting your cart to the curb is as easy as TIP, ROLL and PLACE!

TIP ROLL PLACE
TIP the cart back. ROLL it to the curb. PLACE it with the arrow facing the street.

 

REMINDERS: 

Place the cart at least three feet away from other objects such as mailboxes, utility poles and cars so the automated arm on the recycling truck can easily access the cart for service.

Position the cart so that the opening of the lid is facing the street.
