Place your cart beside or in front of snowbanks/windrows, not on top of or behind them. This ensures the truck’s mechanical arm can access your cart. Leave 1 metre (3 feet) of space between your cart and the snowbank.
Make sure your cart is on solid, level ground. You don’t need to shovel down to the asphalt if the snow is compacted. Consider placing it at the end of your driveway, since this area is already cleared of snow.
Keep your cart away from downspouts and pooling water. Your cart could freeze to the ground, making it impossible to move or lift.
