The most common reason for carts not being emptied was they were not at the curb by 7 a.m. Other common reasons include that carts were left in the wrong place for pickup, waste was put in the organics (green) cart, cart lids were not fully closed or a vehicle was parked too close to the cart. The trucks require 1 m around your cart to be free from bags, parked cars, etc.

You can divert more waste from your waste cart by increasing composting and recycling. Make the diapers as small as possible when disposing. There are products on the market, such as a diaper bin, that compress diapers.
From May to October green carts (organics) are emptied weekly, and from November to April they are collected bi-weekly.
