City Waste & Recycling Services offer some tips for using your green cart this fall:
Yard waste like leaves, branches, grass and plants can go directly inside the green cart.
Always fill your green cart first, then fill paper yard waste bags. Roll tops of bags closed to prevent spills and allow your collector to pick up the bags.
Place extra yard waste bags at least two feet to the side of your green cart for collection. Make sure you can lift the bag with one hand.
Do not use plastic bags in your green cart.
Starting in November, your green cart will be picked up once every other week. Weekly green cart collection will resume in the spring.
