What Day Is My Collection?
Refuse and recycling collection occur on the same day for single family homes up to four-unit residential buildings. Carts must be placed out for collection no later than 7 a.m. Crews will not return for late set outs. The north/south boundary is Greenleaf Street and the east/west boundary is Kostner Avenue. See map.
Larger residential buildings are serviced by LRS and service frequency varies for each property.
Residents concerned about this transition are encouraged to use the next few months to review their refuse habits. The EPA estimates that 75 percent of the American waste stream is capable of being recycled or composted.
So, what can you do to cut back on your trash?
