Trash and Recycle Carts Curbside Timing Guidelines
In the Town’s efforts to maintain its Scenic City designation and keep our neighborhoods attractive, the Town is asking for your assistance and cooperation. Please adhere to the curbside timing guideline in the Waste Management-Double Oak brochure.
To ensure collection, carts must be at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on the scheduled trash pick-up day. Double Oak asks that residents place trash and recycling carts, including third Friday bulk, at the curb no earlier than 8 a.m. the day before collection and to remove the carts from the curb by 8 a.m. on the day following your collection. Courtesy letters will go out to property owners when carts are found at the street past the stated guideline. Thank you for your help on this matter.
