Household Responsibilities
All residents are now participating in the automated refuse collection program, and the following guidelines apply:

All refuse and yard debris must be set out in 96 and/or 64 gallon containers provided by the City of Centerville, with the lid closed.

The container(s) shall be placed at the end of the driveway with the arrow stamped on the lid pointing toward the street. Containers should not be placed in the street, as this creates a potential hazard for vehicles. 

 A minimum 3 foot of clearance around all sides of each container is necessary to allow room for the automated arm to operate safely. Ideally, refuse containers should be placed on one side of the driveway and recycling containers on the opposite side of the driveway.

The maximum loaded weight for a 96 gallon container shall be 335 pounds.

Refuse and recycling containers shall not be stored in front of homes where they are visible from the street.

Curbside Exemptions
Trash will be picked up at the front of the home of residents who are infirmed or disabled and cannot carry their refuse to the curb.   Exemptions may be issued by the City Manager after individually reviewing each request.  The City of Centerville reserves the right to request medical verification of infirmities and/or physical disabilities.  The exemption applies only to regular refuse and recyclables.  Special pickup items, etc., must still be placed at the curb.
