- Place your cart out by 7:00 am the morning of service, with the lid opening towards the street.
- Ensure your cart has a 3-foot clearance on all sides (clear of other carts, mailboxes, etc).
- Place shredded paper in clear recycle bags to prevent it blowing in the wind.
- All recycle materials must be placed in the poly carts provided by Republic Services. Republic's trucks are automated and materials placed in other carts or left beside the cart will not be collected.
PLEASE DO NOT - Bungee the lid down.
