Your cart should be on the street with the wheels against the curb.
For residents with back alley pick up, ensure there is 1 meter of clearance around your cart. This will give the truck enough room to pick up the cart safely.
Place your your cart so the arrow on the lid points toward the street/alley
Place your cart so that there is at least 1 metre (3 ft) of space between your
carts and other objects (e.g. parked cars, power poles, utility boxes)
Leave 3 meters (10 ft) of space above the carts. If carts are placed underneath
a tree, or power line they cannot be collected safely
