Cart Sizes & Collection Information

Residential Collection (single-family homes)
Organics, recycling, and garbage carts are serviced once a week on the same day.

Single-family residential customers receive one 95-gallon organics cart, although 65 and 35-gallon cart options are available upon request. Residents also receive a 64 gallon split-recycling cart (an additional split-recycling cart is available upon request at no extra charge). Learn more about split-recycling collection. Garbage carts are available in 95, 65, and 35-gallon sizes.

Business Collection (multi-family & commercial)
Businesses and multi-family units receive one 95-gallon organics carts per garbage service subscribed, and two different recycling carts (one for mixed paper and one for plastic, glass and metal containers). Cardboard should be flattened and stacked on the ground for pick-up next to the recycling carts or garbage bins. Some businesses have a bin for cardboard—please be sure to flatten before placing it in the bin.  Garbage carts are available in 95, 65, and 35-gallon sizes. Additional carts are available for a fee.
