Items that should not be placed in container:

Do not place bulky items, yard waste or liquids such as paint and other solvents in the containers.  Paints may be dried out by mixing with sand or kitty litter, let dry, bag and place into regular container.  Most solvents may be diluted and flushed down the sanitary sewer.

Extra Items:

Bulky items and sacks of leaves or grass, should be placed near the curb, 2-3 feet away from your residential container on your scheduled collection day.  A separate truck called a "brush truck" will pick up your extra items on your scheduled collection day.

THE SOLID WASTE DIVISION REQUESTS THAT HOT ASHES NOT BE PUT DIRECTLY IN THE CONTAINERS. PLEASE WET ASHES DOWN AND PUT IN A SEPARATE METAL CONTAINER THAT CAN BE THROWN AWAY.

What Time Should My Rollout Container Be Out?

Containers may be placed out for collection after 6:00 p.m. the evening before collection, but no later than 7:00 a.m. on collection day.  After the container is emptied it must be removed from the public right-of-way until the next scheduled collection period.  Days of service vary depending on what area of town you live in.  To verify your collection day please give the Sanitation Office a call at (406) 771-1401.  IF IN DOUBT, PUT IT OUT!
