Curbside Garbage Collection


Your ADVANCE DISPOSAL GARBAGE CART must be placed curbside by 7:00 am on your regular garbage day. No refuse may be placed at street curb line earlier than 2:00 pm on the day before scheduled pickup.


All domestic garbage must be placed in the garbage cart provided by the city. NO other garbage but that which fits into the cart WITH THE LID CLOSED will be picked up. No other containers may be used.


Recycling Carts must be out for pickup by 7:00 a.m. on your collection day!

  • Carts may be set out up to 12 hours prior to pickup and must be removed from the curb within 12 hours of collection.
  • Place cart no more than two feet from the street with the arrow on the lid pointing towards the street (Wheels facing your home).
  • Place cart at least three feet away from obstructions like trees, mailboxes, garbage containers and cars.
  • Recommended cart locations are at the end of the driveway or on the grass next to the driveway.
  • In the winter you may need to shovel out areas for your cart, just like you do for mail delivery – do not put carts on top of snow banks.
Carts are the property of the City of Hartford Public Works Department – you are responsible for lost or stolen carts or any damages other than normal wear and tear to the carts.
