What about parking on collection days?
Do not park at the curb on collection day. If a car is blocking the safe collection of your garbage by the automated equipment, then the driver will not pick up at that time. You will not receive collection service. In order to be serviced, all carts should be placed at least 3 feet from vehicles, trees, etc.

In those few locations where parking is an extreme problem or where sidewalks are narrow, place carts on the driveway or next to the curb with the wheels against the curb, and park autos so as to accommodate the new system. When delivered, your wheeled cart will be placed in the correct position for collection.
