Who is eligible to request an exception for alley trash pick-up?

Any resident paying for City trash services that has been recently asked to move their trash from alley collection to curbside collection. Exceptions can be considered for residents that have obstructions preventing them from moving their container to the curb. 

Clarifying questions for eligibility: 

  • Did you receive a letter from the Solid Waste Department?
  • What is the concern with moving the container to the curb?
  • How do you currently handle your Recycling and/or Yard Waste containers?
  • Do you have a disability preventing you from moving the container?
    • If the customer has a disability, please refer to the Assisted Collection article and relay the information to the customer. 

All of the following criteria MUST be met in order to be considered for an exception:

  • Is the entire alley at least 14 feet wide?
  • Is the entire alley paved completely?
  • Is the alley way clear of obstructions (trees, low hanging branches, power lines and poles)?
  • Is there an adequate turning radius for entering and exiting the alley way? 
  • Are there any other unique conditions that might make the collection difficult? 

How do I know if I am scheduled for curbside trash pick-up?

If you received a letter from Solid Waste, the container will be emptied curbside on the date in the letter. 

How can I request an exception to curbside trash pick-up?
