Standard Trash Preparation and Collection Rules Resume

** As of 9-13-2014: Standard garbage collection and preparation rules go back into effect starting 9-15-2014. Enforcement of weight limits will be the biggest change for our residents. Also, random piles of debris at the curb will not be acceptable. To place trash out for collection, please follow these guidelines:

  • Trash must be contained in bags.
  • Bags or cans of trash cannot be larger than 35-gallons.
  • Bags cannot weigh more than 40 pounds.
  • Trash cans cannot weigh more than 50 pounds.
If these guidelines are not met, residents may receive notification in the form of a sticker placed on the incorrect item. These guidelines are set for the safety and welfare of the collection crew and residents, as well as the cleanliness of the neighborhood. For more information on trash collection and preparation, refer to the SOCCRA Collection Guide or visit Socrra.org
