Garbage & Recycling Carts
A senior citizen who is not physically able to roll the cart to the curb and back and has no other able-bodied person in the household to do this will be given a Senior Citizen Hardship designation. A Sanitation employee will retrieve the cart from its storage area, empty it, and return it to the storage area.
A person who is not a senior citizen, not physically able to roll the garbage cart to the curb, and back and has no other able-bodied person in the household to do this will be given a Disability Hardship designation. In some cases, doctor certification of disability may be required.
