You "Can" Contribute to Curb Appeal

You "Can" Contribute to Curb Appeal

Part of the continued curb appeal in our City is keeping garbage and recycling cans and carts out of sight except for when it is your refuse collection day. Placing these items in your garage or along the side of your home not visible from the street is a simple and recommended way to keep our City looking neat. Another option is to provide screening for your carts, such as planting a small bush or shrub in front of them. If your household needs have changed, consider whether a different cart size is right for your current and future needs.
