Cart Capacity - Don't Overfill

 Please remember that the lid must be closed on both carts and not overfilled with items. This helps keep your street clean and free from debris that may be spilled in the pick up process. 

Most households will find that one trash cart (sandstone-colored) and one recycling cart (blue) will be sufficient if the recycling cart is used for the full range of recyclable materials. 

Trash & Recycling cans

The Trash and Recycling Cart MUST BE completely closed and may not be serviced if the cart is over stuffed

Town residents may order one extra recycling cart without charge. An additional trash cart can be requested for an added $7.15 per month. 

If you anticipate needing additional carts upon establishing new service, you may order them before the delivery date, or at any time. However, we recommend you wait until you have experienced the new program for a few weeks to determine your actual capacity needs. 

* Return completed application to the Town's Development Services Building, 22358 S. Ellsworth Road, by e-mail to or by fax at 480-358-3001.
