A: The City chose to maintain the up the drive service which requires using a 32 gallon can so it can be manually lifted by the worker to empty into the truck. The smaller cans do not have wheels and can not be retrofit to get them.

With the up the drive service, the recycling can does not have to be taken very far outside the garage either as opposed to the curbside collection which requires both garbage and recycling to be taken to the curb each week..
