Bins will be emptied weekly on the same day as garbage pickup in most cases.  Your bin must be at the curbside or at the end of your driveway by 7:30 a.m. on your pickup day.

If an orange sticker was placed on your bin, this means your bin was rejected. The sticker will list the reason your bin was rejected.

If your bin is rejected, please clean it out and remove the sticker.
