CURBSIDE TRASH CAN BEST PRACTICES
All grass clippings should be bagged. Loose clippings don’t stay loose for long and end up being packed in the can which can be difficult to dump. Sometimes, depending on how long the grass has been in the can and the moisture content involved, it can stick like concrete in the bottom of a can. Bag all clippings and leaves. Also, it stinks if it’s not bagged!
Cardboard should be broken down and placed in the can vertically. Cardboard will stick to the inside of the can by shear pressure when it’s pushed down. Vertical cardboard comes out of the can more easily when dumped and is much less likely to slide out onto the street when being dumped. Truck manufacturers changed the mechanism on the trucks so the drivers can’t slam the cans up and down (when they’re upside down) to make sure everything is out, like they used to. It was too hard on the arms of the truck, too loud, and was hard on the cans.
Please DO NOT put dirt, sod, or rocks into cans.
