Where and how do I place my garbage for collection?
Place bins at the curb, or no further than 6 feet from the street, so they can be easily seen by your collector. You can set out as many 32 gallon cans (with lids) or plastic (tied tops) bags as needed. Each can or bag can weigh up to 50 lbs. Just make sure the lids and ties are secured to help keep dogs and other "critters" away, and the area clean.
