When materials are improperly prepared for collection, an entire batch of compost can be ruined or recyclables processing equipment can be damaged.
To help you properly prepare your trash for collections, guidelines are provided for both commercial and residential customers in PDF format. Many of the guidelines are in both English and Spanish and can be printed for attaching to your carts, containers, or distributed to your employees, tenants, etc. Please click on Residential Guidelines or Commercial Guidelines to the right to find the information you need.
