Important Information


Our truck’s mechanical arm needs to have unobstructed access to your cart. Correct placement helps improve efficiency and reduces the time trucks spend idling, saving fuel.

  • Park It - Near the curb or at the edge of the road*
  • Point It - With the handle facing the house
  • Give It Space - At least 3 feet of clearance on each side
  • Bring It Home - Residents are encouraged to be neighborly and bring their carts home at the end of the collection day

*Keep sidewalks and bike lanes clear
Be thoughtful about where you put your waste bin. If you have to put it on the sidewalk, think about how a person on foot or in a wheelchair can get around it. Put the cart as close as possible to the curb so the collection truck’s mechanical arm can reach it.

Please don’t put your cart in the bike lane, unless there is no other option. Carts can be hard to see in low light and force cyclists to swerve into the path of motor vehicles.

All garbage, recyclables and organics must fit inside their cart with the lid closed. Fees are assessed for overflow. What can you do with excess...

Garbage? Pre-purchase an Overflow Tag ($5.39) for each extra bag by calling 360.753.8340 
Recycling? Bring to the Thurston County Waste and Recovery Center in Lacey
Organics? Bring to our Sautrday Drop-off Site (open seasonally)

We use cart tags to help identify important issues with residential carts. When a customer receives a tag, they are encourged to make the appropriate, identified changes.

1st Notice: Cart is emptied and tagged with written notice
2nd Notice: Cart is emptied, tagged and customer is contacted
3rd Notice: Cart may NOT be emptied, is tagged and charges may apply
