Recycling carts should be placed at the curb, three feet away from all other carts or objects, including cars. There should also be overhead clearance of 15 feet, clear of trees, electrical wires, etc. to allow the carts to be lifted and emptied.
It is recommended that all full carts are pulled to the curb the night prior to your normal service day to avoid it being a late set out. If documented as a late set out (after the driver has serviced your side of the street) you will have to wait until the following service day for service. Recycle Ann Arbor will not return the same service week to service late set outs.
