CR&R Recommends You Remember the Following On Collection Day
  • Containers should be placed at curbside no later than 6:30 a.m. on collection day.
  • Containers must be placed side-by-side approximately 1' foot apart and at least 3' feet from any obstruction. (i.e. fire hydrant/trees)
  • Containers should be placed with the handles and wheels facing away from the street.
  • Containers should be removed from curbside within 12 hours after service.
  • Residents are entitled to four annual pick-ups of excess material that can not fit in your automated barrels. One additional pick up is equivalent to three bags or boxes of additional waste. There is an additional fee to collect excess material once your four annual pick-ups are exceeded.
  • Each resident may select a set of specially designed automated containers with attached lid and wheels.
CR&R is requesting that each resident separate their recyclable materials.
  • The black container is for regular refuse.
  • The brown container is for recyclables.
  • If you have a green container, it is for green/yard waste.

If possible, please place your tree bottom first and upright in your green waste container.

Bulky Items Collection Information
Items that cannot fit in your automated containers, such as a chair or a couch, are considered "bulky items." Each residential customer is entitled to four(4) bulky item pick-ups free of charge per calendar year. A bulky item service may include a combination of up to four (4) large items or 20 bags of green waste material. Additional picks-ups may be arranged for a nominal charge. If you are a new resident you may use your bulky item service to collect all of your paper, cardboard and packing material.
