What happens if my container is overloaded?

Do not fill your container above the rim such that the lid will not close. A closed lid helps prevent litter, odor, and spillage when the container is lifted for dumping. If the container is overloaded, an Overloaded Container Fee of $6.50 will be charged to your monthly bill. A tag will be tied to the handle, indicating this additional fee.
