Cart Placement

Cart placement is vital to our collection service. Please adhere to the following guidelines so we may service your cart safely and efficiently.

  • Place carts at the collection point by 7 a.m. on your collection day with wheels facing the garage and the lid opening toward the alley.
  • Allow a MINIMUM of 2 feet of space between your cart and fence and any other object, which may increase damage risk (i.e., gas meter, mailbox, cable box, parked vehicle, landscape waste piles/bags).

Blocking Access to Carts

According to the City of Plano Ordinance, it is unlawful to stop, stand, or park a vehicle or trailer on public or private property preventing access to solid waste or recycling collection carts by a collection truck attempting to service carts.
