Residential Services


EDCO provides each single-family residential customer with a 96-gallon GRAY automated cart for weekly trash collection. Use your gray trash cart to dispose of non-recyclable household trash.

  • Trash and recycling carts should be set out the night before your scheduled collection day or prior to 6 a.m. on your scheduled collection day.
  • Please set out trash carts in your designated collection area on the street with the wheels against the curb or the edge of the roadway. Arrows on the lid should point toward the street.
  • Automated carts should be placed at least 2 feet away from each other and obstructions such as parked cars, trees, telephone poles, and mailboxes.
  • Please be careful not to place carts in traffic areas, such as bike lanes, to avoid blocking paths of travel.
