- Do Not exceed the toter's 150 lb. weight limit
- Do Not bag your recyclables in paper or plastic
- Do Not place excess recyclables on the toter lid
- Do set out the toter so its handle faces the home and the opening faces the street. Please Click here for an example of correct placement
- Do keep a 2 ft. clearance on all sides of the toter
- Do flatten boxes and card board into 2"x 2' squares
