Paint cans may be placed out for curbside collection provided there is no paint in the can.  A helpful hint, add kitty litter to paint and allow to soak for a few days.  Kitty litter will absorb the paint, empty the litter into a trash bag and throw the cans in the trash as well. 

Use plastic containers with lids  The containers should be no smaller than 20 gallon capacity or larger than 32 gallon capacity.  The weight should not exceed 50 lbs. per  container.  Do not place trash at the curb in paper bags, cardboard boxes, wooden baskets, or homemade receptacles.  The contractor is not responsible for litter created by the use of improper containers.  There is no limit on the number of containers for dwellings.   Commercial and business operations are permitted a maximum of three (3) 32 gallon containers.  Grass clippings must be in plastic bags, not contractor bags.  Christmas trees will be picked up by trash collectors.

The Solid Waste Department is not responsible for the removal items due to change of occupancy (rental, eviction or sale of house).
