How to park your vehicle on pickup day

Garbage trucks need lots of space to collect your carts safely and quickly on pickup day. Ensure your carts can be picked up by following these parking guidelines. 

Cul-de-sac parking


All vehicles must be parallel parked with passenger side wheels to the curb. Angle parking is not allowed in a cul-de-sac unless signage permits it.

This helps collection trucks to reach your carts for pickup and provides enough clearance to safely turn around in the cul-de-sac.

Alley parking


Keep entrances to alleyways clear – make sure to park cars far enough way to allow the garbage truck enough room to enter the alley. 

Leave space in alleyways for passing. Emergency vehicles and collection trucks need at least 3 metres (10 ft) of clearance to get down any alley and room to turn into and out of alleys. 

Do not park at the end of a closed alley or within a turnaround area. The large collection trucks need space to turn around safely.

Space around vehicles


Make sure there’s at least 1 metre of space left between any vehicle and the closest cart. See more tips on how to place your carts on pickup day.

TIP: If you are in a busy area where cars are regularly moving and parking, place your carts in front of or closer to your driveway to prevent any vehicle from impeding access to your cart(s).
