Trash

  • Trash & recycling pick-up is on Thursday mornings every week. The day may change during a week due to holidays. Please check the main web page or sign up for the Weston Hills E-Loop email service to be alerted when this happens.
  • Solid waste must be placed within one of the County issued garbage carts and put out no later than 6 a.m. on our designated pick-up day. No excess garbage outside of the County issued garbage cart will be collected.
  • The can with a tan lid is for trash
  • Please keep the lids closed once placed
  • Place your cans with the handle & wheels facing your home and at least 4 feet apart and 3 feet from the curb to allow the mechanical arm enough room to pick each one up and empty it. Most residents place a can at each end of their driveway.
