Containers and timing are important

Garbage must be wrapped and drained of moisture and placed in substantial, securely closed plastic bags. The bags must be placed in garbage collection containers (watertight cans)with lids. No containers may be placed out for collection earlier than 6pm the day before collection; containers must be removed at the end of the collection day. All residents and business owners are encouraged to recycle.
