  • Place extras in personal carts for use on service day
  • Properly sort garbage and ensure food waste and paper towels are in your compost/yard waste bin


  • Place extra recyclables in cardboard boxes and paper bags to be put out next to your recycling bin on service day
  • Store recyclables in a dry location until service resumes
  • Crush cans and break down boxes to decrease volume
  • Tie cardboard boxes together with twine or rope


  • Freeze excess food waste to reduce smell until serviced
