Loose garbage that is around or falls from your roll-cart during collection is the responsibility of the customer. To avoid this, please tie off all garbage in plastic bags and place in roll-cart. Any extra bag/item will be assessed a fee.
Keep the lid closed when not in use to reduce any unnecessary water weight and discourage insects and animals from invading the contents.
