Keep unacceptable items out of your garbage and green bin. If collection crews could not pick up the contents of your bins, they will leave a tag on your bins explaining why.
What to do:
Dispose of items the right way. Learn what goes in your garbage bin.
Food isn't garbage. Learn more about food scraps recycling and what other items go in your Green Bin.
