On collection day, place your cart at least 1 metre (3 feet) away from other carts, cars or other objects. 3 metres (10 feet) of space is required between the top of the cart and overhead branches, wires, and so on.
Place your cart on level ground, with the back wheels facing towards the house or driveway.
Make sure the lid is fully closed.
Alley collection - place carts close to the alley so the automated arm can reach them
Front street collection - place carts on the street against the curb
If there is not enough space to properly set out your carts, please place your carts at the end of your driveway. This is also a convenient spot during the winter time as no additional snow removal is required.
Please refer to the set-out diagram printed on the outside of your cart. A cart set-out tips video will be posted in early March.
