If you are physically unable to bring the autoload cart from your home to the curb you can request a note from your Dr. stating that you cannot perform this task. Once the note is given to the Sanitation Division we will service the cart from outside your residence and return it after dumping. You can contact the Sanitation Division at 612.8491 to arrange delivery of Dr.’s note.
