Waste Connections will make one pass through the City.
Waste Connections will not dump trash or recycle carts set out at the curb. Although, if you are using your cart for items to be picked up for clean-up, make sure it is clearly visible to the driver. Set a couple items outside of the container as well.
Waste Connections ask that all piles be in an organized fashion, and not just in a large pile of trash.
