How should I place my cart on the curb for pickup?

Remember that you will place it, point it, and space it:

  • Place it: place your cart on the street with the wheels against the curb
  • Point it: carts should point to the middle of the street
  • Space it: leave at least four feet of clearance between carts, yard waste, and other objects such as parked cars and mailboxes
