Business Collection (multi-family & commercial)
Businesses and multi-family units receive one 95-gallon organics carts per garbage service subscribed (restaurants receive a 65-gallon food waste cart serviced 2x/week), 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. Garbage bins are available in various sizes.
