How Do I Use My Cart?

When is my cart serviced?

Carts are serviced every-other-week on your regular trash day. Please have carts out by 6 am. Never miss a pick-up: download a calendar or sign up for weekly e-mail reminders.

Where do I place my cart?

Carts should be wheeled to the street, 3 feet apart from other objects, with handles facing away from the street center:

How do I make sure my recyclables get collected?

  1. Do not place blue bags in your cart.
  2. Scrape out food and pour out liquids from all recyclable containers and put them straight into the cart.
  3. Place your cart curbside by 6:00 a.m. on your service day, every other week. The cart must be three feet away from other objects with the wheels facing your house.
  4. After service, remove the cart from the street. Carts cannot be left in the town’s right-of-way.

Are you unable to roll back your cart after each service?

TTSD will roll your cart in and out on your service day with a paid subscription. Contact TTSD directly to set up by calling 530-583-7800.

Can I still use blue bags?

YES! Blue bags are still accepted. Note however that blue bags are not accepted inside your cart. Please place blue bags next to your trash can and recycling cart.
