Why is the collection schedule changing?

Reports of conflicts between wildlife and humans have been increasing in recent years. To respond to this growing concern, the City is splitting garbage zones into morning and afternoon collection zones in order to reduce the amount of time carts sit at the curb. This allows for earlier collection in areas that are more prone to wildlife encounters.

Why the a.m. / p.m. split?

Reports of conflicts between wildlife and humans have been increasing in recent years. In response, the City split garbage zones into morning and afternoon to reduce the time carts sit at the curb. Collection is earlier in areas that are more prone to wildlife.
