How do I request to use City trash receptacles?

If the Event Coordinator wishes to use waste receptacles provided by the City, a Cart Request must be submitted 30 days prior to the event.  

Event coordinators should visit Special Events Cart Information and Request Form for general information and to fill out the request form. Information on the number of carts recommended and the associated fees are found in the Special Event Guidelines document.
