binjamins
Carter, Cartright and Connie — aka the Binjamins — can curb any confusion surrounding trash and recycling collection by helping you become an expert on everything you need to know about proper waste disposal in your neighborhood.
 
Curbside Collaboration

As you likely know, we send three trucks on your once-a-week collection day to pick up recycling, trash and yard waste, but do you know which materials go in which containers before bringing them to the curb?

Knowing the accepted materials for each type of container not only helps us get everything collected efficiently, but it creates a more sustainable environment for everyone to enjoy. Let the Binjamins show you a few examples.

 
 
X Marks the Spot for Yard Waste

While you get your containers ready for curbside pick-up, don’t forget about any yard waste needing to get tossed! Simply throw your leaves, grass clippings, trees and brush into a standard kraft paper yard waste bag or container marked with an “X” for us to collect. To maintain our environmental sustainability, we no longer accept yard waste in plastic bags.

Did you
know?
We collect and compost yard waste to keep a valuable resources from taking up expensive space in a landfill. You can even try composting from your own backyard! Learn how to get started today.
