HOW TO USE THE COLLECTION MAPS

To minimize the amount of time your brush pile is at the curb, click on the below map for the refuse collection area a day ahead of your own collection day. For example, if you have a Wednesday refuse collection day, you should click on the map for the Tuesday Refuse Collection area.

When the map for the refuse collection area the day before yours is colored blue, that means crews are currently collecting from that area. When crews finish that area, they will move on to your neighborhood. And you should have your brush out before crews get to your neighborhood, otherwise it could be set out late and not picked for weeks.

Therefore, when the map for the refuse collection area ahead of yours is blue, you should get your brush curb side. This method ensures your brush is ready prior to crews arriving in your neighborhood. It will shorten the amount of time the pile is on the terrace. And it ensures that you will not miss the crews and need to wait several weeks for the next collection.

The numbers on the map correspond to an internal numbering scheme for assigning zones to crews. They are not dates and can be ignored.

The areas of the map that are shaded blue are the ones currently receiving collection. You can track our progress by clicking through the maps and finding the ones with areas shaded blue. Maps are updated at the end of the work day and do not update automatically when crews finish an area.
