Residents will need to have all debris curbside by 7 a.m. on the designated day of collection listed above for their area. Items should be segregated into six (6) piles away from fire hydrants, mailboxes, power lines and other objects that will hamper safe pickup.

Also, remove all parked vehicles from the streets when debris crews are working in your neighborhood.  Debris should be placed close to the side of the road away from mailboxes, trees, meters, fire hydrants and other structures. Please do not place debris in the roadway. If debris crews are unable to pass safely along the streets, they will not be able to remove your debris.
