- Place your can at the curb or nearest collection point by 7:00 am. Cans must be brought in within 24 hours.
- Use the 4 ft rule: place your cans at least 4 feet from other cans, trees, fences, cars, and any other object.
- Please don’t overload your can. Items should not stick out above the top more than a couple of inches.
- Loosely bag your recyclables (use an old plastic garbage bag) to help prevent the wind from blowing them out of the truck. Bundle your plastic bags into a "bag ball" and tie it shut.
- Remove lids from plastic bottles before putting both in the recycle can.
- Call us at 385.468.6325 to replace a broken can
