All items must be in the gutter or on the edge of the terrace by Monday morning during the scheduled pick-up weeks only. Items will be picked up sometime during that week. Anything placed on the terrace after the Street Department has picked up will not be collected until the next scheduled week.

Grass clippings are never picked up.

There is a designated area for citizen disposal of brush, leaves, garden waste, weeds, and grass clippings at the Street Department at 1065 Carey Street. If you bring waste in bags, please dump and take the bags home with you. This site is monitored. The site is accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
