Curbside Collection

A service typically provided to residential communities, curbside collection consists of placing household waste in large containers near the curb of the home for pick-up by larger waste management vehicles. Curbside collection began during the latter part of the 19th century, when some homeowners began generating enough waste to require the service. In most communities, collection is scheduled for the same day each week, to allow for ease and predictability of the collection process. Special receptacles might also be provided by the waste company for this purpose.
