  • Secure loose items to avoid being blown around
  • Place all your metal items together on the side of the pile so it can be easily accessed for recycling

  • Ensure items are away from any overhead obstructions like low power lines and trees 

If other residents in your street are participating please keep your piles separate. The pile will be removed during the week of collection in your area.
