FAQs


They didn’t pick up everything at the curb. Why?

 

There may be several reasons for this. There are limits to how much trash you place at the curb in a single day. Certain items, such as white goods and yard waste, are only picked up one day a week. Contractor generated waste is not picked up at all. Please click here to view the refuse and recycling rules.

The collection company didn’t come today. What do I do?

 

Was your trash at the curb at 7am? If not, you may have missed your collection. Trash and recyclable collection begins at 7am. Always have your trash at the curb by this time as routes may change at any time. The days your trash is picked up will not change. If you see that your neighbors have also not been picked up, we suggest you call the collection company directly for the fastest response. Meadow Carting is the current contractor for the District. They can be reached at 338-0121. However, we also ask that you contact the District at 883-4447 so we are also aware of collection problems. We keep track of complaints and use these to improve service.
