Can I request a smaller cart?

Yes, please fill out an online form. Please note that you can only make an adjustment once.

  • While we have other cart sizes available (PDF), we have found that the 95-gallon cart is the most suitable size for most families. Remember that during holiday weeks or other special events, you may have more recycling than other weeks. Everything needs to fit LOOSELY with the lid closed.
  • If you have physical limitations or you are absolutely sure that you would like to switch to a smaller size (we can only guarantee one switch per household) - please fill out this form and leave your unwanted cart in an accessible location.
